Since Success And Failure - Poem by Francis Duggan

What matters if you've never known success
If others you cannot seem to impress
Since success and failure eventually lost in the sands of time
To try and fail can never be a crime
The word loser a word that is abused
As a put down word it is far too often used
When applied to others in a disrespectful way
The ignorance of rudeness knows no bounds as some do like to say
Like in a garden many a weed for every rose
What goes for the garden goes for humanity one must suppose
So seldom heard of the nicer word of equality
It can seem a less judgemental word than success it does seem to me
Some people use some words in a judgemental way
And that such people are not rare does seem quite sad to say.
