Things I ask myself.
What is it about the chase?
And why don’t we trade it for love?
Why do we only want things until we have them
And then they’re not enough?

Why do we always crave
What will only ever hurt us in the end?
What is it about the unattainable
That captures so much of our attention?

Is it the thrill of victory?
The sweet taste of the win?
Is it on the power and control
That we ride high until the end?

Do we self sabotage or is it
Our arrogance whispering that we’re the exception?
Is it human nature seeking new heights
Or the fear that something had can be taken?
