|If we were to have true equality
Author: BeautyFromTheEyes PM
It's funny how our teachers tells us that we can all be successful, but we measure success by being better than the rest, and thus we cannot all be successful.Rated: Fiction K - English - Poetry - Words: 110 - Reviews: 1 - Published: 09-29-11 - Status: Complete - id: 2956818

Every day the body does more stressing,
Without a chance to rest the busy mind.
Every night the mind does more guessing,
Without a sign that the soul will unwind.
They say success is always within reach,
And that anyone can climb to the top.
But they don't say that failure fails to teach,
For the river of tears is hard to mop.
If there is a top, there is a bottom.
People like to think that they are equal.
This conundrum haunts us like a phantom,
Just like how work will not leave us tranquil.
If we were to have true equality,
Then success would not brew hostility.
