Hidden Ambition

Written trails of the hidden ambition
Blazes across continents
And rises on its own conviction
History pauses at its conduct
Men bridle praise
They fall asunder
They can neither judge
Nor stand at its gate
So they wait
Upon their great ambitions

"Men bridle praise
They fall asunder
They can neither judge
Nor stand at its gate" ..woe..tough, but I like it!
