It is better to fail than to pass... Poem by veeraiyah subbulakshmi


Those who have failed in the simple tests,
Are retained in the same class to take rest,
And they can try again to do their best,
Those who have passed the tests of good and evil,
Are promoted to the higher classes of tough and toil,
To take the tests of challenges to prove their tolerance.
Have we passed our tests to have been promoted,
Step by step, grade by grade to reach the top,
Have we failed our tests to retain at the same level,
To go through the same comfortable papers,
Many times in our life, as we haven't proved,
That we are not eligible even to pass the first grade,
Of notorious evil multiplication tables, hard to memorize,
We are retained in the same grade until we pass.
Those who have passed the tests of Gods, suffer the most,
Those who have failed the tests, may live in comfort.
