Goal Digger

Goal Driven

Goal Seeker

Success is all I wish for

Doing good is what I pray for

It’s not being selfish

It’s the desire of being successful

Wanting it all, and getting it all

All from hard work

I do it for myself and those who support me

Failure will never be accepted

Fame,Wealth and Power will never be my main objective

Striving for the best will be my method

I cannot afford to loose

When my immigrant parents have tried given me everything

To win and become successful

Struggles will occur but they’ll be part of my victories

I was taught to fight for my dreams

And not make excuses

Self motivation and determination is all I will need

To reach success

    Thank you Jovana for sharing with us why are you ambitious. I liked how your worded your poem and how you expressed what you really feel.I agree with what you said that you have to work hard for what you want and through this poem I now understand why are you so ambitious.

    Dear Jovana,
    I really enjoyed reading your poem, you wrote it really good. I agree with you on the undocumented parents and them giving us everything. You used good grammar and everything is really well put. I hope to read more posts from you.
