Relishing The Success
If a need wished and wanted,
Has come to be granted...
To the one that is fed,
Those standing by...
Repeating their misdeeds to tease,
Are the ones missing a chance to recognize...
Their own opportunities,
With hopes their efforts impedes...
Someone they believe is not aware,
Of what it is being sought to seek...
A satisfying achievement.
'We did it.
We denied him being mentioned,
To be among the top ten.'
How can we be sure,
He has become more pleased...
By not receiving the attention? ~
'That is ridiculous.'
And how can you be so sure of this?
His smile is broader than it was before.~
'That's just a tactic used to confuse us.'
From my observation,
It seems he is relishing the success.
With others impressed,
By his lack of seeking our attention.~
