A Haiku - Ambition

A Haiku - Ambition

Ambition, like gas,

drives you 'til it's exhausted,

more than hope or fear.

Source

If your ambition is to be fit, you will work at it until you are. And then you will persist by staying fit.

  • A Haiku: It's November

    November: the month when "The war to end all wars" ended; yet wars go on. November: the month when America's elections end, and governments go on.

  • A Haiku - Leadership
    20

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

A haiku can be thought provoking, even though it consists of only a few lines. Yours definitely fits into this category. Thanks for sharing it.

AliciaC - Some things are worth thinking about. Perhaps I have an ambition to someday be a thinker?

Right now a lot of my ambition and things I was hoping to get done have hit a large snag. My PC desktop broke down and I don't think it will come alive again. So all my important material are in there and my best ambitions for now must be put aside as I peck away on my hubby's laptop but thank God there is that. So for every set back there is also some sunshine and hope.

Very much what ambition is like! Funny, but so tue.

Gypsy Rose Lee - Sunshine to you. "Where there is bad luck, good luck can't be far behind." (Old Chinese Proverb)

teaches 12345 - It is sad that so many high school students today seem to lack an idea of what to look forward to.

I think ambition gets a bad rap--ambition can lead to results!
