Achievement

If you can kick and claw
through the surging masses,
lift yourself up
into coveted upper echelons.

If you can burn each day
down to a cinder,
running nonstop into
late night hours at the office.

If you can drive your
chrome plated symbol of achievement
through crowded lanes
of shifting social status.

Can you tell me
what it is
you are chasing?

What is it then,
that you are dying for?

“Abandon not the everlasting beauty for a beauty that must die, and set not your affections on this mortal world of dust.”

~ Baha’u’llah, The Persian Hidden Words
