You Also Have a Success Story! Know why…

Aston kamunde

Love life and a lasting smile on your face

The path of success is one lonely path,
It is diligence that keeps one going,
Just like the branches of a tree,
Each takes its own definite direction

I like to think that it is not the total,
Of dreams that one has been able to harness,
Or the illusions or fantasies that are finally beckoning,
But the many paces taken towards the ultimate destination,

It is the aptitude to recover,
From a heavy stench of frustration,
Overwhelming and almost suffocating,
That made one scared but hopeful,

Success is causing little but visible sparks,
Of light that is brighter than the balmy sunshine,
In a world with virtually no prospects,
That wakes feelings of strength and confidence,

It is that inner feeling of peace,
That rides one to dazzling heights,
To bath in own spotlight,
Being able to stand tall and proud,
Like the trees that embody all freedom

  1. How are you doing my friend ? I really enjoyed this poem – especially the last stanza. I’ve been on a sabbatical over the past three months having ended a phase of my career feeling both a sense of accomplishment and feeling bruised. This has been a time of reflection for me to redefine what success is in all areas of my life. So this poem is very pertinent for me. I like the way you have broken it down to every step being part of the success. As they say: every step of the journey is the journey – so to success is not an event of destination only, it is every marker towards that event or destination. Have a lovely day!

    1. Hearing those lovely words gives me so much joy and encouragement. Am so glad you had time to go through the entire poem. The little successes that we accomplish most of the time go unnoticed, while in fact they matter the most! We all have success stories in our lives, its not in wealth or fame. Wish you a lovely day too Chevvy8!!
