Success

Success lies beneath the popular support
If you maintain contacts and good rapport
It will be great encouragement and strength
If maintained on same wavelength

What amounts to failure or success?
When you fail to have full access
Relentless efforts with continuous zeal
It will mark a” finish” with final seal

It makes very great difference?
If you fail to draw correct inference
You must heed and pay to an expert advice
When something fails as mechanical device

United we stand and divided we fall
If you not wake up and not heed to call
You can swim against rising waves
With resolute action ways may pave

People will be frustrated and annoyed
If message is not be properly conveyed
Close your hand and it will form strength
People will follow it with same good length

Young may have to sacrifice and die
Not to give way and not simply lie
It is need of an hour and must rise to occasion
Not to wait for chance or battle for succession

More you work in peace time than less you may bleed
Success may touch your feet and you may succeed
Why not take chance and work for peace?
Life may be normal and you may leave at ease

    The last stanza is the most revealing here. Peace and wholeness of being are more important than all the travails associated with success. A few points about success: there are often expectations brought to bear once we have succeeded, and we're often afraid we may not meet those expectations. Moreover, successes often incite envy, and there's always someone more successful than you. They aren't permanent either. Although I don't understand many lines here (because they're too abstract) , I appreciate the thoughtfulness of the poem as a whole.

    Please read my new piece 'Dante and His Three Beatrices', if time allows.
