Arrive
© July 18, 2007, Roy Stucky

Pull me quite outside myself -
Inside all looks the same.
Let me feast on burning skies,
And fill my gut with flame.

Acquainted with ambition,
Familiar with the drive.
A man in my position
Can't let himself 'arrive'.

Rot if kept upon a shelf -
Goes stale when doesn't flow.
Sight that fails to move denies
The call on life to grow.

Acquainted with ambition,
Familiar with the drive.
A man in my position
Can't let himself 'arrive'.

Nothing comes from nothing done -
The race demands your all.
Captains take the center square
While tourists hug the wall.

Acquainted with ambition,
Familiar with the drive.
A man in my position
Can't let himself 'arrive'.
