Yes and no, success and failure,
anxiety waiting on the cusp of every conversation.
No satisfaction, no complacency,
relaxation a luxury, stemming from burnout.

Where does it come from,
this desire to succeed,
to push further and further?
Satisfaction reserved
for the bigger and better.

Body slumping, slouching, slithering with apathy
when defeat appears,
sweat dripping in anxious rivers
when success suggests new responsibility.

Life fractured, begging reaction,
never able to conclude what is better.
Stagnation and ease,
continued stress and success,
or even a recession to less,
all begging to be pursued.
