Failure

Failure

2 mins 236 2 mins 236

Fail, Fail, Fail often makes me appear sad and pale.

It seems success now has turned out to be something that's for sale.

We all work hard to be bright.

But why is it that my hard work never brings yields any light?


Every time I fail, I end up crying in pain.

Not because I have nothing to gain, 

It is because of the sad reality that effort put in by talents is all in vain.

If failure is the stepping stone for success,

then why is it that my failures gift me with only another failure to dress.


Half of them are talented,

whereas the other half are money-minded.

What about us, who work hard day and night without taking any rest.

Yet end up not being the best.

 When I was seven years old.

My ability to recite Latinized verses was considered as valuable as gold.

But later did I know that my prize was already sold.


By the time I was ten.

I was able to write beautiful stories using a bright red pen.

But again my prize was sold to a group of rich young men.

And as a consolation prize, I was given a little toy hen.

Is playing with talent and hard work after all a game.

I don't know why people consider money over talent and give them fame.


 Though people throw failure as a stone at me,

I will succeed one day which you need to wait to wait and see.

And will be able to suck nectar from my success as a bee.

Fail, fail, fail still makes me appear sad and pale.

But in the following generations, I will never let success be something meant for sale.
