Obsession, Self, and Despair

Nearing the closing portal of time,
this mortal reviewed the achievements of his life;
years that had past, now seemed like eons gone by.
he was elated and even smug.
it took willfulness to become the person he was.

There were many infringements in his life; 
stumbling blocks, pitfalls and obstacles.
all could have hindered him from attaining his goal.
ignoring loyalty, pledges to others, and love for fellow man,
he fulfilled his passion...much to his satisfaction—
and much to the dissatisfaction of many he swept aside.
he reached the peak of affluence.

Sadly, for the avarice, who envied his success,
his prominence would no longer be an obstacle,
others also, would surmount the pinnacle he obtained;
he had shown them how it was done.

As always...for those unmoved, and unsympathetic,
there would be a price to pay for their achievement.
this impediment, they would not overcome.
they too, would discover soon enough, 
the cost for their self-gratifying achievements was high.

He cried out in anguish...
"Dear God Why Am I So lonely?”

This may be repetitive, my thoughts are I may have submitted it a good while ago. None-the-less it is one of my favorite.
