“The greatest among you will be your servant.
Those who exalt themselves will be humbled,
and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
Human ambition dreams…
Glory and legacy are elusive though,
and their testimony is mute
for those who moved hearts for themselves.
Human ambition strives…
The world’s hall of fame is exclusive though,
and greatness cannot be seized
by those who want honor selfishly.
“Power dazzles the minds of many.
The crowd worships the mighty
but history has an infallible lesson,
the bankruptcy of the ambitious.”
Human ambition is limitless…
Narcissists are hapless though,
and the cheers are vapid and toxic
to those who are intoxicated by their incense.
Human ambition is ruthless…
The exploits of greatness are fleeting though,
and the gods of yesterday are devils today
with those who alter the truth.
“Through art and war,
through endurance and strife,
we have striven to become great
for a few brief days, and failed.”
 Matthew 23: 11- 12
 Father Judge Meditations p220
