Failure

Failure

In the buckets of doubts
Slowly, calm my mind goes blank
Hopping, stooping, running, oh, the race is tiresome
What! Who to tell? 
Maintaining it pains
Having it gone much more
Most especially when it’s from stress

As beauty pierces one's heart
As affliction darkens her mind
That is the feeling
As stress produces scrunches
As it draws you near the mourning feast
As you get tempted to surrender
That is when it gets worse
As if, it's always as if she was born to have you hurt

Invest in all you have
Work hard my friend
It all depends on one's efforts
It's not by chance but by choice
Simply put, it sounds simple
But wonder why? How? What?  How does it happen?
It's always, as if always she is there to have your belligerent

The non-stop blaming statements
Parents failing to understand
Teachers pretending they were not around
Friends rejoicing their victory as if you didn't attend the same class
Success tips viewed as nothing but vanity
Grasping for the wind is the result
It’s always as if she was put in place to wake your worries up

All this leaves a fog of doubts
It creates a loophole of what success meant to mean
Setting goals may be a step to the war
Hard working a warrior
Tests battlefields
Giving it your definition the first shoot
By only working smart one can be the purple host.

Hello! Inasmuch as failure hurts, it's by understanding failure, one gets a true understanding of success. Failure defines success.
