Be Your Next Success - Poem by William Chaplar

You ran away from home one year and ended up in jail.
To make things worse, your parents had to come and post your bail.
If this dumb act defines you, then your life will be a mess.
So stop being your last mistake and be your next success.

You didn't stop wetting the bed until the age of ten.
You live your life in fear that you might one day start again.
The future can't look bright if on the past you stay obsessed.
So stop being your last mistake and be your next success.

You failed a urinalysis, and now you're off the team.
It's obvious that this will not add to your self-esteem.
But you know good and well there's other skills that you possess.
So stop being your last mistake and be your next success.

The past is in the past, so to the future set your sights.
But just remember, lofty goals won't happen overnight.
None of the good things that you want will come to you unless
you stop being your last mistake and be your next success.
