Tangled web of ambition


Tangled web that I wove

When to the extremes I drove

To make the world dance to my tune-

That web is going to chain me soon…

Fueled by unbridled ambition

Trying to get every dream to fruition

Never stopping to look or care

Those around me could not dare

To show me a mirror of my actions

Never did I pause to judge their reactions.

Trampling feelings and emotions

I hurtled ahead with fiery passion

Single-minded in my approach,

Oblivious to the silent reproach

From my friends, who were leaving

My life, without my perceiving.

Alone I now myself find

Human contact left behind

Surrounded by worldly possessions

Accumulated in quick succession..

In my tangled web I lie

Regretting the days and months gone by.

How I wish I had paid heed

To my friends’ and family’s need

Realized the power of burning ambition

That annihilates kindness and compassion.
