Ambition Haiku

Allegory of Ambition by Franz Wagner

a love ambition

turning to an obsession

sees no boundaries

~

riding pegasus

striving to capture his lust

his blind ambition

~

death follows behind

lethal ambition for her

a god-sent angel

~

mars’ warrior son

ready to kill and be killed

an ill ambition

* For Carpe Diem # 242 Ambition.

It was a few years back…

It was a few years back

that people used to

call me an orator-

the one really eloquent

in conversation, the one

who can talk with any one

and today I find myself

at a path where

I find it difficult to

even talk to myself.

It was a few years back

when I was confident,

always striving to be a leader

and see today I find myself

cowering behind,

wanting some one else

to take the responsibility

while I just see it

from the back.

How time changes

and how much I have

changed,

how much my life

has changed me.
