Fail Forward

“I fell in a hard way
I smothered my life in a bitter way.
I cried and cried inconsolable.
All I wished was to finish off my story.
Those moments of sadness, anxiety profound
Failures are difficult not an easy acceptance
I felt the weakness and pain immense
I hid in a veil of false perceptions
Holding the sadness, not letting it go
Gripped by fear of something unknown
Feeling miserable can suffer no more”

“Good and bad are parts of life
The road is long with jerks and bumps
The journey we undertake depends on us
We can sulk and scream with disappointments immense or
We laugh and love and learn from our failures
Improvise our thoughts and strengthen believes
Failures are such, will never leave us.
They are the teachers the guide tough
Refine your thoughts and rise up.
We need to write our story with firm determination
Life is all what we make of it”
