Addicted to “Progression”

Yet never fulfilling a purpose.
In an eternal chase
To ‘realize our potential’
Yet never quite understanding
Why we are here in the first place.
Doing all we can
Simply because we can,
Following the trend
Being led nose-first
By our blind ambition
And the insatiable desire
To prove a point.
Covering up a deep sense
Of lostness
With work and overwork
Qualification upon qualification
Distracting ourselves
With a world of possibility
And never quite
Discerning
What its all about.
