Not a final frontier

My contribution to 3WW

A chase of a lifetime
peeking away from daily treasures
one step at a time, you walk
the giant hops twice as fast

with great effort, you catch some
only to find bigger monsters
staring right at you from a distance
tangled by the ever alluring race

taking bigger and wider strides
you reach to master those creatures,
unrealized that you've transformed
to a tamed, timid slave at the end

conquer or to be conquered
money not the final frontier
understand the loss before gain
life meant to be superior

Good one.. especially the last stanza..

Now,

conquer or to be conquered
fear not the final frontier
understand the joy before fear
life meant to be adventurous

What I got from this is... there really is no way to win the rat race. I hope that's somewhat close to what you were intending.
