I want to be successful.
The need to feel that feeling
the euphoria of a total victory
followed by the total realization
that in order to maintain that feeling
you must work harder, better, cheaper,
more efficient, more speed, more…
I want to feel that wonderous feeling
of being useful by my successes,
of winning a constantly waged war
against all the potential failures
that plague a life well-lived.
I want to do the damnable,
to maneuver that uphill battle,
to stand atop that pinnacle
lookout across the plains
put hands on my hips and say to the sunrise
“All right, let’s go again.”
