A real win


I don’t want success
That singles me out
As a lonely winner.
I am placed on top
To look down upon
The losers.

I don’t want success
That becomes the cause
Of jealousy for others,
My friends, colleagues,
My brothers and sisters.

I want success that touches
People around me in a positive way.
When they really feel glad and say,
Hey buddy you made our day!
When they feel proud,
Wholeheartedly applaud
My success from within,
That’s for me a real win.
