A free verse poem of real glory.

What is Considered Success?

Stigma says money equals wealth,
Claiming cash will purchase happiness.

Society states prestige dominates culture,
Valuing praise for its force of power.

Potential is not measured by owning coins,
Or through honoring a high reputation.

Succeeding is earning dignity by self-respect,
Wrestling to gain character through integrity.
