Up the Ladder



SUCCESS
Success is something you fight for aggressive
Something you strive for no matter how bad the stress is

Success is something only few can achieve
It has to be something you eat, sleep, and breathe

Success is something already made up in your mind
If you think that you may fail (Trust me) you will every time

Success is never ever a given
You have to step up and take it and you have to stay driven

Success is usually hard work and rarely the easy road
You have to look past your obstacles and keep your eyes on the goal.

Success is looking past your flaws and what you can’t do
Success is knowing what you can do and what you will do in order to make
your success come true.

Success when it is achieved, some praise and others hate it
But bask in your success because only you know what it took for you to make it!!!



Congratulations

I wrote this for my best friend. She's graduating today with her Master's degree. Words can't even say how proud of her I am. But I did my best in the poem above. She probably won't read this on here. But as her gift I had this poem framed so she will hopefully have it somewhere hanging in her living room soon.


I can remember when she first moved here to Chicago 2 years ago and was just beginning her Master's program. Well it's been a long 2 years and like any other success she faced obstacles along the way. As a friend I did my best to motivate her to keep at it and not to give up. That even included helping her with her homework/papers, staying up late to finish assignments, and helping to do research. Well needless to say she did it. And today she will walk across the stage and receive her degree.


So to my BFF I want to say I'm proud of you and congratulations. I know that you will be acheiving many more successes in life. This is just another stepping stone to your ultimate goal in life. Now let's get across that stage so we can party tonight. LoL. But for real to all the other graduates this year I congratulate you as well. Much success to you all.
