Of success and failure


Failure
That I feel so near
Nest for the heart
Pillow upon which I lay my head
Tears role
I have failed all over again
Even in sleep.

Of success
Some I’ve had
All but forgotten
The thrill of win doesn’t last
A quick high all in the past
The sting of failure leaves behind scars
Which I carry with me
All the way to the stars
