Raw Ambition



Everyday, I grasp at very meagre hopes of improvement,

Mountains are sharp hillocks, oceans are just big puddles. 

With effort of will, everyday I try my hardest to be excellent, 

The bar is not higher and I am not tired of these struggles !

Everyday, I try fight with my own shadow, to my detriment…

Holding onto hope that my muscles won’t burst like bubbles.

This picture is baking me so emotional right now! It's incredible and genuinely inspiring! The clear metaphors is not blatantly obvious to a painful cringe, it is a thought not many have thought of, yet can understand mere moments inward. The mountain climber is purely hilarious and I couldn't help but cheer him on! Must be the ambitious part of this dreamy picture! I am also just amazes by the dedicayion in the fiber details like the hands and crevices. The colour gives it this natural feel, and a... Newish vibe to it. Makes it seem natural to challenge oneself!

Also, the underside of his tricep reminds me if and old pineapple or an exoskeleton.

This kind of reminds me of something Arnold Schwarzenegger once said; that when he did bicep curls, he envisioned himself pushing up mountains.
