There has been a somewhat negative spin on some of my recent posts that I want to rectify today.
Throughout life we have highs and lows and at times have to dig ourselves out of a deep trough.
I have certainly celebrated success in running and teaching and I feel that I have been successful as a dad.
This poem / song I wrote 8 years ago is dedicated to those times when we have been at our happiest bathing in the glory of Sweet Success.
Have passed the test...sweet success
Done our time...no second best
We settle for...nothing less
At last...finally...we witness see
What long back now had promised to be
Never too late...the feeling great
Savouring the taste of victory
Anxious hearts have filled with glee
Uncertain doubts quickly flee
Cheery and bright that once was night
Shining the light of victory
Had seemed far off...little gain
As battled winds...in the rain
Now you fly...high and dry
Soaring the heights of victory
Soaked up the heat...found safe retreat
Clutched from the jaws of defeat
Found rest and peace...joyous release
Nestled in the breast of victory
