My Definition of Success


Success is not about having deep pockets;
It is not about buying expensive lockets;
It is about swimming against the tide,
To pursue what is right.
It is about feeling that the world is my oyster,
Even if I am not a big star.
It is about reaching for the moon
By defeating the internal loon.
A full purse provides access to shop in the mart,
But a full purse may not account for a happy heart.

Success is not wearing an expensive shirt;
Success is to inhabit in someone’s heart;
Success is not about winning the crest;
Success is not about passing the test;
Success is not about trying to wrest;
Success is about continuation of the quest;
Success is about being blessed,
Success is about trying dead level best.
