At Any Cost - Poem by Paul Sebastian

Hitting big at any cost!
Better to win than be lost!
Success is mean, there’s price to pay
To compromise or by principles stay

Bigger goal tags a higher price
There aren't short cuts to win a prize
Terms and conditions must be met, in full
Lady Success demands honesty, not guile

Achieve burning desires at any cost
If compromised, your pride’s lost!
An unforgettable deal if compromised
Stays to haunt for rest of your life!

Watch the path you take
For there’s a lot at stake
Walk the less travelled path of success
The gravelled road leads to happiness!

It’s not paying the price of your walk
It’s enjoying the success prize you stalk
It’s the benefit of your own creation
It’s not to meet someone’s expectation

Choose to hone self-pride
Choose to don honour
Choose to carefully stride
Never submit to people’s clamour

    Choose to hone self pride
