The Measure

What is the measure of failure or success?

Is it by our heart's standard, or the world's?

Is one's passion deemed failure or success by forces
beyond the ego's perimeters?

Where lies the truth?

Are we to be stabbed with failure's painful sword, 
or should we not revel in the sweet ecstacy of success?

What is the measure?
