A poem to encourage people to look beyond the success of someone else. What did that person have to do to become where he or she is now?

About the poem

I wrote this poem, because there are many who are not aware of the fact that someone did a lot of effort to get to the point they are now. They don’t know what battles they fought, they only look at the person that he or she has become.


By Poetry Esmée


People only see
The top of the iceberg
They don’t use the key
To see the rest of the iceberg

People see the success of someone
The behavipir they show
They don’t see the work someone had done
To get at that point they want to be

No one looks further than the top
Of that iceberg
The moments when someone wants to stop
But kept the faith.
