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.
