Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
William Jennings Bryan


I can not find the door that leads to the path of success
I sift through the empty hallways opening each of the entrances of false hope
Continuing I stumble across an entrance and swing it open
It was my last hope
What I found was hands
Many hands reaching out towards me
Forever willing to protect and help a lost one such as I
Then,I finally figured out that success will only be found within the people I know.


The author's comments:
I wrote this randomly just thinking about the stresses of my life and how so many people strive to find success. Here within this poem I have discovered it in my family and friends.
