Verse: You

You…

won stature, fame, and beauty

You, surrounded by earthly success and power

You have everything, almost anything that anyone can earthly dream of

But

You missed learning values

Your massive wealth outshines you fading values

You where too high you forgot you can fall

 

You

Lost in the eyes of men

Branded weak, slow and unworthy

You,  who came from rock bottom

You, who lost the material things to gain the imaterial ones

You found peace, compassion, humility and love

It will never roar and shine but it will fill the depths of your soul and heart

In the process, you lost the luster and glimmer of earthly things

But earned something worth dying

 

So tell me

Who are YOU?

At the end of this life,

Did you really win?
