failure and success


success is a damsel
that intoxicates;
failure is your mistress
that teases.

success is a drink
that leads to stupor;
failure is the beverage
that shakes you up.

success is a temporary
shed in life's journey;
failure is the pathway
to ultimate destination.

dont let thus
success beguile
into
momentary comfort;
learn to befriend failure
to last the journey's end.

success is the mistress
of easy charms;
failure is your wife,
of considerable virtues;

failure enriches you,
success may shower
riches on you;
failure is the sweet little
drummer to roses ahead
on the path ways,
success a sweet companion
not to be seen
when winter comes
your ways, as it must
in one's life,

leaving the summer
far, far behind.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
