Energy of optimism
Blows out the flames of
Burgeoning despair.

Success is a matter of fulfillment,
Pleasure and pride.
At first you may not succeed,
But with growing zest and effort,
You can take the success in your stride.

The taste of success is sweet,
Rich in delight and contentment.
You may face trouble at first,
But with growing confidence,
It persuades the luck in new direction.

You’re not going to give up,
Make it loud and clear.
You may have to take pain in making attempts,
But with growing determination,
Success gives you the opportunity to cheer.
