What Success is?

success is the success of beliefs and thoughts,
success is the battle which have been saught.
success is not about getting fame and name,
but reaching the hieghts being the same.
success doesn't mean to get money,
but to remain as sweet as sugar and honey.
success comes if you chase it harder,
and an honest try is its starter.
success is not the thing to be waited,
but a depiction to be stated.
success is the dream which comes true,
when napping goes away from you.
success is not a game of letters,
but a truth which really matters.
success is the fruit of one's life,
which takes a lot of patience to hive.
success doesn't come by being ahead from all,
but to respect the things, from big to small.
this is the poem for success to preach,
the real value of life which it uses to teach.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

this is to know what success really is, we think that being succesfull means having heavy bank balance,4 or 5 servants who may roam around and most importantly if we are known by the surroundings. but i think we have only one life and only one chance to be successfull, so for the sake of this one chance we should first become successfull inside ourselves then for the world because when one dies he remembers the deeds he had done throughout his life not his bank balance or any thing else and being successful inside is just about being great..thanks, hope this poem will effect you all..

    A nice poem Tanya. The rhyming is unusual in places, and there are a few spelling errors, but the sense of the poem isn't affected - I get the message. (Report) Reply

    Tanya, have you ever considered that success might just be the creation of a state of consciousness within which the true self, Soul, is in acceptance with all of life and is thus truly happy? (Report) Reply
