Mistakes, Blunders And Failures - Poem by Ali Kristianto Budiman

I’m down on my knees but not to pray
Just to cover my face and waste another day
Reminiscing how I had failed before I even try
Never make a perfect landing because too scared to even fly

Living in a memory only get me nowhere
Keep whining, ” I’d rather be anywhere but here”
I’m not living just for the moment
But I’ll try to make each of them count
I’m here to present all that I got

Cause now I’ve realized
Mistakes are necessary,
the secret behind every success story

Every blunders happened,
to be overcome and beaten
Luck doesn’t come so obvious,
And every failure is precious
