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.'

~But...
How can we be sure,
He has become more pleased...
By not receiving the attention? ~

'That is ridiculous.'

~Oh?
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.'

~Well...
From my observation,
It seems he is relishing the success.
With others impressed,
By his lack of seeking our attention.~
