Getting Over A Failure (For Liza) - Poem by RIC BASTASA

be attuned, there is no such
thing as a permanent failure,
there are only preludes
success even is temporary
how much for failures?

do not diminish yourself
failures are merely suspended
successes, be patient for
it is just but a matter of time

failures are but temporary guests
the uninvited ones whom you
can even dismiss at any time
but don't be too harsh upon
failures and upon yourself

like everyone else that you meet
give them time to speak and
be with you, they also have something
to say, though not nice, but there
is also so much to learn from them.

that ugly guy over there, welcome
him inside your house, serve him
tea and company, he has something
more important to say, than that
handsome man over there, who like
a magician, gives you only illusions.

sometimes what is more real
let me say this once, is failure.
