What Does Success Entail - Poem by Francis Duggan

It can be quite relative this thing known as success
And on such different people different opinions express
On who is or who is not successful there is no unanimity
The hero or heroine to you may not be so to me
On success no two in thinking exactly the same
Many can only link success to money and fame
But some to disagree with this are strongly inclined
Those who claim you cannot be successful if you are not compassionate and generous and kind
And others will tell you why bother to pretend
Of talking of success since we all become failures at the end
Of our lives journey since we all do die
The fact is we are born as mortals and fact never lie
What does success entail i for one cannot define
And your idea on this is as good as mine.
