My Ambition

My Ambition

Is the porch.

Where I will sit at day’s end

To review the day.

Where I will be at life’s end

To measure my success.

By the wealth of family and friends,

The volume of discussion and laughter shared,

The amount of stock in my community,

The value I hold in another’s heart,

The savings kept by others of my words and actions.

My ambition is my porch.
