Secret to Success - At The Top

Updated on January 18, 2017

This poem is about how you have to keep working to maintain the number one spot, at the top.

I have worked hard,

Done all that I can,

Burned the midnight candle,

In a dark, lonely land,

Toiled hard,

Worked night and day,

Not minding the hardships,

The aches or the pains.

I have read, researched,

Found new ways,

Solved the most puzzling,

And brought on new waves,

Waves of success,

Waves of victory,

Now, I am at the top,

Am happy as can be.

Let me tell you now,

The view is great,

The feeling is splendid,

The glory is great,

Feel proud of yourself,

But keep working hard,

Never slip down,

From where you are,

      Great message in your beautifully expressed poem!

      Reaching at the top needs hard work but to maintain that position needs further more hard work and focus.

      Wise words! It is great to be on top, but you have to keep focused and keep working hard on what it takes to stay there. Never easy, but it is worth it.
