Beyond Victory

Success is not what it seems.

He wins her.
They live together.
They mutually split.

He wins the race.
He boasts and forgets values.
Arrogance becomes his armour.

He attains a dream job.
He forgets responsibilities.
Quality of his work performance deters.

He sets a fitness target.
He sincerely trains for a month.
He ignores practice when target is attained.

He gets elected.
False promises vanish into thin air.
His tenure ends.

He victoriously cheats.
Results are in his favour.
His guilt burden turns unbearable.

Isn’t success maintaining the hard-earned victory?

Cheers!
