I accomplished a long-desired feat,
I’m happy, but I feel beat,
All that time and energy well spent,
In retrospect, it seems quite the event,
Somehow it doesn’t seem all that real,
Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel,
There’re too many emotions whirring,
Is that a sense of loss that’s stirring?
Why do I feel sad about having success?
Is that part of some emotional process?
