It is the force that will drive us through the jagged paths of life,
and navigate us through the unpredictable twists and turns.
Success is what fills our lives with significance.
What is the definition of success?
Ever since we were children,
we were asked what we wanted to be.
Our parents laughed at the ideas we had,
and lectured us until the message that money equals ecstasy
became implanted in our minds.
Our passions were replaced by the hunger for paychecks,
and our dreams morphed into elapsed memories.
Success became a feat unreachable by the poor man.
And we yearned to achieve the concept of success.
But what if success meant more.
Beyond than price tags and purchases.
What if success was deeper than the superficial realms of greed.
What if the definition of success began with the word love.
What if affection surpassed wealth,
and compassion conquered possessions.
What if your worth wasn't measured in dollars,
But in the number lives that you have touched.
Money cannot warm a dying soul,
yet a smile will melt a heart.
Let passion control your actions.
Let love define your meaning.
We are stronger than the yellow chains of greed.
We can prove our significance without a bank.
Our society needs change.
and our world needs kindness.
Success can be beautiful.
