Measure for success

How shall I measure
my success?

By my ability to impress?
By my skills,
my knowledge,
possessions or dress?

I’d rather be assessed
by those things that
can’t be measured
in units
of length or number
wealth or weight
or even likes

Peace that is priceless
truth in my heart

How my life aligns
with present convictions

How I walk free
from past
illusions, addictions

How I believe
and then live
for future predicitons

The alchemy of present
that become future’s

when a life once
me breath by breath
in simplicity
and integrated
