Ambition is a vital, mighty flame
whose smoldering blaze is within Us all,
kindling our dreams from inaction to vigor
whilst heating our innermost passions.
This fire, ever-burning, allows humanity to progress
though the Ambitious have the propensity,
to fuel such a frightening fire
with seemingly important commitments.

with its tempting, warm, welcoming embrace
iinviting us to hypocrisy and fraud.

that an abundance of ambition forges
