A Haiku - Ambition

Updated on October 8, 2014

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.

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

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

      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.

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

      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.
