Reaching for the Top

The world doesn't remember losers,
It remembers those who have won,
It fails to see the sacrifices of anyone
Reaching for the top,
Inching closer to my goal,
The destiny ignites in my heart,
The glass shards of my sacrifices,
Dig deeper into my soul,
Nearer I go, my pain fades,
Closer I am, my heart stays,
There is no stopping at this stage,
I have no choice but to turn the page,
Prove to myself to those who said no,
Look at my reflection and not feel hollow,
Reaching for the top,
I had contemplated my choices,
But the closer I got, I felt no sorrow,
As I step on to the top,
I remind myself of what it took,
My choices, my sacrifices and my doubts,
The world I had conquered
And how my place as No. 1 followed
