Achievement

I don’t think I have posted a poem on this blog yet. Here is a wonderful poem about achievement, which describes it better than I ever could.

 

 

Achievement

by Alister Renaux

 

Achievement…
Is not basking in the glory
It is
The glory of the endeavor

Achievement…
Is not public acclaim
Rather, it is
Personal vindication

Achievement…
Is not looking back with pride
It is
The satisfaction of moving on

Achievement is…

Realizing a goal set,
Fulfilling one’s potential,
Hurdling over an obstacle
The success of one’s dream

Perseverance over failure
Accomplishment against the odds
A step in the right direction
The triumph of one’s spirit

Achievement is…
The reality of a dream
That was, once, shaken out of its trance.
