Carrots on a stick

This hope is a carrot on a stick tied to the donkey’s head, it makes us move ahead, hoping someday we will reach the carrot. You never get the carrot but you have moved on the path which burns your every hope into ashes and after some brief moments of emptiness, words begin to form into ideas and ideas give you fresh carrots (hope).
What if we choose not to convert these words into ideas, will we be able to avoid the carrots?
