Failure


I don’t know why do you cry?
Accept failure before you try,
Try to hide as you die inside,
Don’t let the tears fall from your eyes.

You want to be strong I know,
To bear the sting as your losses grow,
To hear the taunts as they bait you,
Forgetting they have failed too.

So don’t just paste a smile on your face,
When your heart in throbbing within,
Success comes from disappointments,
To show you failed is not a sin……………………

    After a long time I am reading your poems this morning.
    This latest one of yours is a beautiful piece. I liked the inherent inspiration, and I liked the rhyme too. The note makes the poem all the more beautiful. I have no doubt, your sister must have felt greatly inspired and motivated by this poem.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
