Success


If I were to be not myself,
then I would rather not want this success,

If I were to unlearn all my values and principles,
then what is the use of learning the tactics of this success,

If I were to barter the blissful moments with my loved ones, for this maddening race, then I would prefer, this success, to not to be chased.

If my smile and emotions have to be fake,
then I would rather not socialize just for the heck (of it) .

Yes, it is important even for me to have success,

The realization of aspirations is what is my success.

The utilization of skills and tapping of potential, is what is my success..

The zeal to learn and always wanting to improve, is what is my success..

To compete with none but myself, is what is my success..

The satisfaction of giving and contributing, is my success..

I want this success and am moving only towards this SUCCESS! !

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
