Hi. Tell me something good.

I'm not okay sometimes. How are you?

"We are the daughters of feminists who said 'You can be anything,' and we heard, 'You have to be everything." -Courtney Martain

Wanting, needing, trying to be everything
will end you
or
at least impare your hope
and
probably your will to live.

I'm not sure what it is but there is such
an allure to ambition
an allure
to always keep moving
an allure
to never not have a goal
an allure
to restlessness
an allure
to overworking
an allure
to burnout.

Is it the things we desire or
the things we can't reach
that destroy us?
I would really appreciate reviews on this.

    This means so so much to me, more than you might know. I'ld rant here, but I need to go to class, so I won't. I'll get a review in tonight though!
