Ambition

I don’t do anything on my own.
There’s a reason for my interest,
in what I’m trying to get.

Everything that attracts me,
has a hook.

I’m just a fish,
hoping to get what I want
and wanting not to get hooked.

For my heart will sink,
If I’m dragged by a line.
I don’t do anything on my own.

Ambición

No hago nada por mi cuenta.
Hay una razón por mi interés,
en lo que quiero conseguir.

Todo lo que me atrae,
tiene una trampa.

Sólo soy un pez,
con la esperanza
de obtener lo que quiero
y no engancharme.

Porque mi corazón se hundirá,
Si me arrastra una cuerda.
No hago nada por mi cuenta.

Listen to Hawk Nelson—Live Like You’re Loved song

“Who is good, if he knows not who he is? And who knows what he is, if he forgets that things which have been made are perishable, and that it is not possible for one human being to be with another always?”

Spanish Translation

“¿Quién es bueno, si no sabe quién es? ¿Y quién sabe lo que es, si olvida que las cosas que se han hecho—perecerán, y que no es posible que un ser humano esté siempre con otro?”

Quotes by: Epictetus—The Great Stoic philosopher, (Translated by: ElRoy, 2021)
