Comparing Poem to Everyday Life This poem is ultimate truth of every youths life. Ambition to man is what fragrance to a flower. It is a force without constraints or restrictions. Whatever ones age or status is, everyone nurses in his heart a secret ambition. It is born out of todays discontent and looks up to a better or satisfying tomorrow. It is a driving force that spurs the inactive in to action a force that shakes off the lethargy like the west wind that sweeps off the dust from the ground.
It is because of ambition that nobody likes to remain as nobody, and everybody would like to be somebody, somebody-good, great powerful and wise as the Shakespeare has said; Why then, the worlds mine oyster Which I, with my sword will open It cuts like a sword, the outer shell, to bring the inner pearl out. Similarly in this poem the subject who is bathed in dreams of his own ambitions when hears to an astronaut feels inferior to be equal. Even if not then he dreams if he could be the same one day. His faith shakes for a little while and then he looks at the starry sky with a mixed feeling. Little known to history is numberless people who have achieved greatness in their little spheres of action, as grey calls- many a gems of purest ray serene. Burning with an inextinguishable flame of ambition, they too struggle and toil, trekking along with perseverance, surmounting difficulty after difficulty and in the final race they may not be the winners. But posterity will certainly remember them.
