the mind latches

The mind latches
Narrow focus
Intense desire
Ruthless ambition
Unquenchable
Missed expectation
Enduring discontent
Sacrifice
Burnout
Failure

I try again
No choice

Eyes focused on the North Star
Of ideas, ambition, obsession
Once the mind fixates
There will be no rest
For good or bad.
Tomorrow I will wake up tired.
