Oh Thy Agony of Sweet Success
thy sweetest part of thy soul,
By they who barely meet succeed
To comprehend thy fruit of its labor
It requires neh glory all the time
But rather fits of pain.
Not one of all thy flesh of your fruits
Until thy notion they comprehended
That success not screams purely pleasure
But instead raw agony.
