Climbing to the top is often not costless. ‘Success’ is all too often measure in rank and salary, and rarely weighed in the balance with other of lives rewards: love and relationships to mention just, for example.
To the top
I see them struggling to reach that place
And in their efforts they lose their face
They played the game and got their dues
But is it worth it to kill your Muse?
