A perfect blend

A perfect blend

Sometimes a damsel;
Sometimes a mistress
Both spell out ways
For failure and success
Success is considered
Sweetest and an intoxicant
When with damsel it dwells
Failure is the sorest
When with mistress it dwells
Yet none could define
So clear the success
Songs thrill the path of success
And failures filled with silence
Success a drink, leading to stupor
Failure a beverage, stirring up
Success may shower riches
But failure enriches souls
Success comes but once
Failure more than once
Success walks with failure
And failure with success
Toil, talent, love wasted here
If passion for each other
Does not stay and goes astray
Success builds temporary shed
On the pathway, but failure
Is the pathway to ultimate stay……..
Once success is tasted
It would be unwise not to befriend
Failure to last the journey’s end
As both failure and success
Are life’s perfect blend........

    However hard we wish, we cannot keep failure away from life.... Even the most successful man must have failed several times... As a famous quote says.... 'Failure is not falling down, but staying down'! Each time we fall, we should learn to rise up and learn from failure. Our life is a perfect blend of success and failure! A great write, Deepak!

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
