ambition

Been thinking about this quote a lot lately. Been thinking about ambition and how it can be stifling and stagnating. Really focusing on how the desert isn't filled with pyramids.... just SOME. Keyword some. Sometimes I feel like my grand plan is just too overwhelming. Everything is okay; even my unorthodox ways for now. Everything is on course and will flow along. deep breath.

ON THE STRENGTH OF ALL CONVICTION AND THE STAMINA OF LOVE
Sometimes I think
we could have gone on.
All of us. Trying. Forever.

But they didn't fill
the desert with pyramids.
They just built some. Some.

They're not still out there,
building them now. Everyone,
everywhere, gets up, and goes home.

Yet we must not
Diabolize time. Right?
We must not curse the passage of time.
