Poem and Stories Poems


Gold is not common  
Gemstones are rare
They do not grace every shelf
They do not come easy
They are not cheap
There is a price
Success is not cheap
It is not a lucky dip
It is not a fairy tale
You don’t wish it
You Work it
You pay the price
There is a price tag for every success
For every achievement
For every fulfillment
For every Rise
You pay the price
No ‘free price tag’ shelves anywhere
Before the glamour you desire
Before the fame you wish
Before the glory you dream 
Is a story
Is a price
You pay the price of success
