Be careful what you wish for

Ambition viewed

from a distance

cannot be seen

with clarity

It is thus advisable

to be careful

what you wish for

The fine detail

is indiscernible

dreams of success

are shadowy

It is thus advisable

to be careful

what you wish for

When you achieve

the the heady heights

of leadership

It is most difficult

to turn away

from acquired responsibilities

It is thus advisable

to be careful

what you wish for

Once you cross the bridge

between being a follower

and become the followed

Your life is often not

as you expected

but turns out to be

something much less

desirable

It is thus advisable

to be careful

what you wish for
