What exactly is success?

Is it striving to be the best?

Is it forgoing your rest, so that you can ace the test, even if you were blinded?

Is success not needing to be reminded to go all out and shine even when there's doubt from your peers in their minds?

Is success believing in yourself and your ideals even when there's no one to confide in?

Is success furthering those ideals even if they're collidin' with the social norms of today?

Is success the journey of having started from the bottom and picking yourself up time and time again in order to pave your own way?

Is success knowing not to make the same mistake twice?

Is success showing the world not to take you light-ly?

Because if they do, they might be, missing out on an opportunity to see how bright-ly you can really shine

And when you do, my oh my, that will be a sight to see

Is success becoming a great?

Is success working against the odds and persevering in order to determine your own fate?

Albeit, you might have to climb the highest mountain or traverse in the lowest valley, but in the end won't you have achieved success?

With success won't you be able to look back and say, "Hey, I made it through this mess!"

With success won't you be able to look back and say, "Man, what a test it has been, but damn, all I can do now is win!"

And in the end, when they ask you, "What is success?" 

You'll be able to say, "It's grindin' through all of your trials and tribulations so that one day, you can sit back idle and receive your congratulations from having set yourself apart form the rest."
