Failure And Success - Poem by David Harris

Failure is the penalty,
for continually getting things wrong.

Success on the other hand is the award,
for getting things continually right.

Failure puts you down in despair.
Success sends you soaring among the clouds.

Therefore, I look at myself and wonder,
am I a success or failure.
Then maybe I am a bit of both.
Whichever way the hammer falls
only you can decide.

    I think I can answer that question and it doesn't begin with 'f'. Howver... this sort of self-assessment, whilst irresistable to all (which makes the poem one to which your reader can SO relate) is bound to lead to self-recrimination. I know that for me, I am constantly thinking that I am failing. Sometimes it takes years to realise that what felt like a failure at the time in fact contributed to a pretty damned good present, and perhaps, was necessary if unpleasant. And people are not, in themselves, failures, don't you think? Only intentions/actions fail. People are just, generally, rather wonderful inventions, methinks! t x (Report) Reply
