The definition

Of success

Eludes me

Much like the feeling

Itself

How can one put

Words to

Something so defined

By an arbitrary set

Or rules

By a system designed

By time

By half hearted

Smiles

And guarded jealousy

You can’t.

So them why

Do I strive

So hard,

To reach this elusive path

To walk this road

That thousands

Have martyred themselves

Upon

To no

Particular

fruit.

It seems absurd

That I spend the

Precious few

Waking hours

That this universe has granted me

To chase a definition

No one-

Let alone myself

Can define

So maybe I

Should take a look at my

Life

Good and hard

And really think

About the definitions

About the motivations

And most

Most

Most of all

About the person I am

And the one I am becoming.

You live and you die

And all through it

The two constants

Will only ever be

time

And you.

The definition

Of you

Matters more

Than word number

Who knows what

In a dictionary

On a dusty shelf.

It aways has.

It always will.

You. Just you.
