The Greatest Downfall

Man’s greatest downfall is wanting more. Get a raise, but want more after. Have a nice car, but wanting the newer one. It’s all never out of reach if you work towards it. Ambition is a favorable quality after all, but blind ambition is all consuming. Call it determination or a drive, but satisfaction within this life will never be more than a few moments.

It’s the reality of it all. To be successful is the dream, but with ever growing discontentment. The less fortunate don’t have this issue — far from it in fact. They unlike the silver spooned fed children of grandeur, they are content with what little they have. They know this is it and that’s all they need or matters in the end.

Fuck me.
