People praise an ambitious man. They raise their children to be ambitious and full of energy. I have also heard ambition is life. But is that true? Is ambition life?
Ambition is a hunger. Like a hungry man desires to eat, so too is a man who is trying to get something he wants: he is hungry for it. Therefore the one who says ambition is life is mistaken, for hunger is not life. A living person hungers until he is satisfied. Hunger is something that the Creator put in mankind in order to awaken us to the needs of our bodies. So, too, are other hungers messengers, reminding us of a lacking. Therefore ambition is great in order to achieve, but it's not life.
To pursue hunger is to live an unsatisfied life! Think of the example of one who loves money. He is never satisfied with the money he already has and is always hungry for more. This is a terrible sickness. And not only hunger for money rules over people, but rather all ambition for physical possessions. The more he gets, the more he wants and a person who is always hungry to fill his desires will never even get to satisfy half of them before he dies. Therefore if one is living to chase his desires, it's a never ending pursuit and will prevent him from any enjoyment of the present.
Think about it: when we strive for materialism we are never satisfied and all it leads to is fighting and wounded people. The winner is never a true winner because he is still left with his hunger for more and never satisfied. And the loser is even worse off still with his hunger and beaten.
I hope you get something real and lasting from this new tune of mine. Wishing you all only good things, Gedalya

Lyrics

She was young she was bright working every day and night
Waiting for the day she’d be living what you’d call a life
But is anybody really living is anyone really alive
Anybody out there living or are we just trying to survive

He got old he turned grey talking about a better day
Went through years of toil and pain for someone else’s gain
Waiting for the day he’d be living alongside of the cream
Is anybody out there living or is it an American dream

See the gold getting old watch the beauty fade away
After you were taught and told happiness would come your way
Someone’s knocking at the door asking for a piece of bread
Thought that you were poor this fellow doesn’t have a bed

Out all day hunting prey coming back tired and beat
On the edge of your demise fighting for a piece of meat
Is it what you call living always got to watch your back
Is that really living like a wolf running with the pack

See the gold getting old watch the beauty fade away
After you were taught and told happiness would come your way
Someone’s knocking at the door asking for a piece of bread
Thought that you were poor this fellow doesn’t have a bed
