Chasing the Carrot   (Castellano)

You see them walking fast, focused on what they think they want to achieve.  Immune to their surroundings, they appear to wear blinders like a draft horse. Tap their shoulder, they'll ignore you.  It's no accident that our materialistic society rewards these poor suckers, first it tied the carrot to their necks.

In time, they'll find themselves carrying more responsibilities than their shoulders can bear, making the work of others and for others, obtaining little or no personal benefit.  At this point, whether they realize they were scammed or not, it's too late to escape, they'll probably spend many years, even the rest of their lives walking in circles, like a donkey in a mill.

Lost androids of modernity, that's how I nicknamed them.  They'll die ignoring that what's relevant and enriching is found when one stops searching, pursuing, when wisely deviates from the path to success, looks around with an open mind and heart and gives the fair opportunity to what this life and its nature have to offer.
