Treasure Island

Chizom Okpara



Success is not just about becoming famous and rich
It’s about persevering as soon as you feel that one and only twitch
There are numerous examples of the 5people who did succeed
They worked hard didn’t give up and eventually they did proceed

Don’t give up don’t try to be a cheater
And sooner or later success will be much sweeter
When the days are long and you don’t feel right
Success isn’t easy it doesn’t happen over night

When im alone in my room thinking of my future plans
I imagine waking up to the sound of my fans
Individuals think that the pounds will just pour in like that

50 cent shot 9 times the doctors didn’t think he would survive
But he believed in his self and eventually he was alive
Shot in the arm leg face and the head
The people thought he was dead as he was lying in his bed

Ronaldhinio grew up in the back streets of Brazil
He did succeed thanks to his blessing of pure skill
He succeed because of his great passion for football
The passion he had in his heart since he was small

When you enter this world you given one single chance
To go ahead with your feeling and your success will enhance
This chance I given to you to do something with your life
It’s not given to you to take someone else’s life with a knife

If you have a dream of success and it involves a mission
Forget the ones who disagree go and achieve your ambition
Like Eminem said “you only get one shot do not miss your chance to blow”
He’s right don’t waste your life its your time to show

Adolf Hitler is a prime example of bad success
The Jews Screamed No but he did Progress
When you want to succeed and you see you’re in a mess
Just try your hardest for yourself and not to impress

When I’m sitting there drinking a cup of tea
Suddenly a surge of success is running right threw me
Making me want to do something productive
Ignore that little voice in your head telling you to be destructive

So when you need a change and your life seems in doubts
Just read this poem that’s what success is all about.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
