The door to success

March 15, 2019

Many times I felt I held the key to ultimate success;

choosing which door to pick became my greatest test!

I’ve never smelt success before, nor tasted it, what’s more;

I often thought success would come knocking at my door.

My life meandered quietly, along an undulating plain;

usually doors would start to creep, then slam shut again.

Sure, life’s great and meaningful, for this I do feel blessed, 

I desire health and close friends, more than money to invest!

So remember time is short and opportunity never waits,

since I found the elusive key, my life no longer hesitates.

I have unlocked so many doors, as I walked my crazy corridor,

I chose success, my door to life; I know its mine, what’s more.

Finally open! The smell is sweet, much better than perceived,

My family, my friends, my mind, success; yes I have achieved.
