Failure Revealed

Falling is not failure …

Nay failure, is failing to stand up after the fall

To transcend the challenge with renewed courage,

Or failing to embrace the promise of opportunities

That before one with the bounty of inspiration appear,

And decidedly, ignoring the echoes of encouragement

Seeking to persuade the aching spirit, but rather

Assuming the tangled cloak of woe and utter misery

To wallow in the comfort of abject helplessness to the

Grand disillusionment of the propulsion of hope itself.

Tis then, failure multiplies in its fullest dimension

Poised to overwhelm those that elect to court it nonetheless.
