To try, to fail.
To struggle, to fail.
To learn, to fail.
To give one’s best, and fail.
To hurt, and fail.
Sometimes there seems to be no end
Over and over, we try, fumble, and stop
It hurts even as you learn and try again
The wise people say it’s the only way to grow
You fail again, even as you try to understand
Never ending, a vicious cycle descending
A weight of worlds spiraling downwards
Tense breaths as the calm slips away
Again. Get up, analyze, learn, try again
Once more you tell yourself. One more time
Finally arriving, it arrives with the bill
The cost of failure, the resources to try
Rather than anger, only a void to fill
The price is one’s time, sweat and suffering
Even with nothing, you’re left with a gift
Humility. Knowledge. Growth,
It hurts, it burns, it heals, it mends.
Ever-present, either in the moment or by the scars left behind
Thanks for reading, it’s been awhile.
Have a great day
