School of HP: The Meaning of Success (Poem)

Topics: ,
  • What is the meaning of success?
    And is there one true definition?
    Is there a universal test?
    Perhaps that ties it to ambition?

    Perhaps to money… or career?
    Or hRewardow the others view your choices?
    Is there a word that rings so clear
    That it drowns out the other noises…

    I would say no, avoid the stress
    There is no word that plays the master
    One’s definition of success
    Is but another one’s disaster

    Success is but a state of mind
    A state of calm and introspection
    And those who live it always find
    That it exists in every action

    Success is but each single stride
    And recognition that comes with it
    It isn’t known from outside
    It only happens when you breathe it

    It happens when you overcome
    The boundaries that are put before you
    When fear is making you go numb
    And yet you’re there making it through

    Success is life in all its glory
    Success is traveling your way
    Success is writing your own story
    Success is treasuring each day.
