Success I need

I fail when I desperately want to succeed

I fail when success I sorely need

I fail, and the failure cuts like a knife

I fail, and get up reluctantly, because that is life..


Sometimes my self-worth I end up tying

To a narrow definition of success- despite trying

When I do not succeed, my self-worth takes a nose-dive

And thereafter takes a while to revive


Sometimes there is a glimmer of hope in the midst

Of failure, sometimes the path to success is clouded in mist

I have to take a step forward either way

And move ahead, step-by-step and day by day

And that’s what I do, when miserably I fail

After I’ve lamented my luck, to no avail

I take a small step forward, then another one

Soon my journey from the point of failure has begun..


I fail often, and rarely succeed

I’m trying not to let success be a need

As long as I do not let failure my self-worth define

I can go on, hoping that one day success would be mine
