Failure


I don’t know why do you cry?
Accept failure before you try,
Try to hide as you die inside,
Don’t let the tears fall from your eyes.

You want to be strong I know,
To bear the sting as your losses grow,
To hear the taunts as they bait you,
Forgetting they have failed too.

So don’t just paste a smile on your face,
When your heart in throbbing within,
Success comes from disappointments,
To show you failed is not a sin……………………

    After a long time I am reading your poems this morning.
    This latest one of yours is a beautiful piece. I liked the inherent inspiration, and I liked the rhyme too. The note makes the poem all the more beautiful. I have no doubt, your sister must have felt greatly inspired and motivated by this poem.
