Icon of Success

a poem by Akila S

What is this burning in me,
   the spirit of confidence or
   the humble flame of humiliation?

What is this emigration in my world,
   people moving away from me or
   me moving away from people?

What is this world under my feet,
   a bed of roses or
   a rock of spikes?

What is this I always see?
   Its my goal
   and my goal only!!

Then who can I be???
I’m the Icon of Success
