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.
