Defeat Failures


Don't have time
You say

Always a busy day

Deadlines to meet

Another assignment

Work of higher priority

Taking place
Of one at hand

Several of previous
Objectives 
left
Unmet, unfinished
And forgotten.



Don't have mood
You say

Time passes
At its own pace

It doesn't wait

Tomorrow turns
Into today

And the job’s left
Still undone.

You know
The right approach
And fail to follow it
Knowingly
Water seeps
Under the rug

Making life
Uncomfortable.

Plan your time
Waste not
Develop right
Frame of mind
Keep cool always
Set your goals
You'll never fail
To achieve.

    'Success has many fathers and failure is an orphan'. But we have to accommodate both of them in our life as failure is a teacher and success is a diplomat very often. Your poem, sir stands as out as a piece of advice to check ourselves in bringing down the frequency of failure teaching us endlessly... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
