The Bitter Path Of Success

The taste of success

Is indeed sweet

It takes years of efforts

To embrace the victorious treat.

Who does not want to wear

The glorious success crown?

To get the shine

 From the glitters of glory,

In the muck of offence

 A person has to drown.

The journey of success

Not so easy for all

You need to walk through

The dark tunnel

To see the darting light

Later, on you which will fall.

Failures and low spirits

You need to defeat

The thorny path

The storms on your way

You have to meet.

Fear and negative thoughts

Once you beat

It is then the success

Will eventually kiss your feet.
