Different Strokes



Different strokes, wheels on shells     
Like road paths to walk on
Ambitions and success


Meaning of what we narrow down aim for
Killing two birds with one stone
Or serving two masters


In metaphors  
Abstract verses 
With hidden meaning


In the end what is success in definition  
Is it how others perceive us  
How we portray our selves to others   


Or how we feel   
Deep down within ourselves   
When no one is looking, on self reflection   

What is the value of what we stand for  
Is it worth enough to stick our heads   
Up over the parapets and be seen as thus  


Or be enslaved   
By circumstance ambitions   
Grounded granted excuse to follow    


In the end is it the will   
That determine where we stand   
On being content  with life 


On questions and answers 
Painted pictures with words, brush strokes
Asked and answered, you decide

  3. "Or how we feel
    Deep down within ourselves
    When no one is looking, on self reflection" For me this is the definition of success. Beautiful written =)
