Failure (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #7)   Leave a comment

I wish I could say I have failed all my life
I wish I could say that I’ve lost
I wish I faced perils, obstacles and strife
I wish my dreams were a sunk cost

Because through the failure I’d learn
Each loss is a step towards winning
Through the perils are victories I earn
From the cost would spring a new beginning

Instead I left my life to waste
Sitting idle without any traction
Instead of loving life I’ve been chaste
My only failure is my inaction

Is it to late to advance? I don’t know.
But forward to greatness or folly I go.

– Shaman Romney 2018
