 Ambition

If I cannot scratch my cat's chin
Until she is ready for me to stop.
If something is more important
Than this present moment in time.
Wondering what my priorities are;
Looking deeply into my soul.

Ambition, looking past the moment;
Ambition, powering into the future.
Ambition, forgoing the present;
Ambition, fighting against what is.

If I cannot hold my lover's hand
Until she is ready for me to stop.
If my future is more important
Than this present moment in time.
Pondering what my priorities are;
Looking into the face of my ambitions.

Ambition, desiring so much more;
Ambition, unsatisfied with my portion.
Ambition, wanting more than my share;
Ambition, that forceful drive to strive.

If I cannot take another moment
To converse with you, my friend.
If I cannot see the blessings I possess
In my present situation of my life.
Seeking balance, leaving behind greed;
Being thankful for the breath of life.
