Failure

I come back home all weary one day,

So weary that my legs gave way,

Then on the ground, I look down and say,

“Did I really fail today?”

I pondered and wondered on this uncanny question,

This had never happened to me on such an occasion,

I was filled with so much devastation,

That I forgot to realise this was just an exception,

It’s ok to fail sometimes,

For failure is ubiquitous in our lives,

What matters is that we strive,

To live in the face of failure rather than survive..
