Ambition

Ambition
          by Odin Roark

We ponder
Natural versus man made
We marvel at technology
Remembering youth’s innocence
Adult expectations

We bolt
Futures filled with confusion
The imperative of progress
Move with the flow
Or be left behind

We escape
Wondering about the conundrum
The future unknown
The past unchanged
The present rife with decision

We walk
Trails beneath our feet
Birds above our head
Flowers blanketing the tundra
Wildlife to photograph
Huts for resting

We run
Timeshare development at our heels
Everyone wishing to live beyond
Never knowing long term costs
The kind slowly absorbing our oxygen
Consumption’s methodical genius

“We’ve arrived!”

But where?
