Failures Today

Written by: Louise Picek

On my knees,
tear streaked faced,
my shame haunting me.
I must remind myself,
that I am being trained,
that every time I've fallen,
I learned to walk stronger through the pain.
This moment wasn't has defeating as before,
the heartache is healing quicker,
and these failures of today are a gentle push,
a clear insight,
a conquered fight,
one that will ultimately build me up again.

I am given a retrospective moment,
reminding me of before,
showing that my last failure
was much greater than today,
giving me hope that the future trials
will be easier to diminish,
and I will see the truth.
The failure of today is just a gentle nudge,
giving me the strength
and faith
till the battle is truly done.
