Success

Success.

We all desire it.

An island so far away

A paradise

Beautiful

Sparkling

Enticing

A place were everyone has their head held high

Titles and wealth

Us, plebeians stare with green tinted eyes full of envy

Lucky Bastards

Eyebrows furrowing and eyes narrowing

While staring hard at the barely visible island

So close yet so far away

Yet we fail to see

The monster infested oceans surrounding it

Eeary creatures that the mere sight of would make you stomach turn

The hidden icebergs

The daggered gates

The obstacles

In the air, in the sea, on the ground

Yet you only see the glistening island where all is gold

The journey those have fought is invisible to you

you must learn that all that glitters is not gold

No one in this world receives anything for free

Look at their journey and you will see
