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
One thought on “Success I need”
Onward, Sister. You’ got this.
