Paying the price for success

As I traveled this road,

The darkness seemed to settle in,

There seemed to be no hope of ever winning in life.

But that’s when I found my true character.

The character that could only have been molded by pain.

The character that prepared me for my success.

I thought I was not strong to endure it,

But I found satisfaction in knowing that,

I had to figure my life out.

For whether or not I would win,

That was a question that only I could answer.

And this answer would either mean:

JOY or REGRET.

I chose JOY, and thus paid the price for success.
