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

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
