A is for Achievement

You did it.
You finally did something.
Achievement is good, right?
They acknowledge you now that you have achieved their goal.
Go on, shake their reassuring talons.
Congratulations, you’ve earned their respect.
They admire you because of your achievements.
They judge with anxious eyes that see only a standing pile of achievements.
They are proud of you now.
You didn’t disappoint them this time.
At last they provide you with the recognition you craved.
Don’t forget to tell people about your achievement.
What good is it to achieve, if no one recognizes you for it?
