In my early twenties, I thought success was gauged on what things you had got.

Then I witnessed many lose everything, on their way to the top.

I also witnessed others implode as they fell short of their goals.

Many met with depression, with their thirtieth birthday the hammer blow.

The ones I find truly successful, the ones that are happy in life.

Passion they follow, skipping clear of inner strife.

Their job becomes irrelevant, just a means to pay a few bills.

Time and age less important, just standing strong like the hills.

Not looking for substance or scenarios to escape.

Not bound to material objects to fill a void, they have cut the tape.

Masters of happiness, nothing polished or fake.

The subtleties of life have more to offer, than a profit gaining corporate.

prioritize your life, find out what you really want.
