Tricky Success

Success is such a funny thing
We long for it so hard
But also we fear it

Adulation, fortune
The chance to stand on the podium
Wear that golden medal
All seems like something meant
For one greater than ourselves

We fear the attention we crave
“Imagine your success,” they say
“Imagine it and it will come true”

But success is so hard to picture
We sooner see ourselves fall
Mess up, make fools of ourselves
Before we see accomplishment

Even when we can have it

Always we wonder

“Could I have done better?
