When you let failure gain momentum

take traction

and get a foothold in your memory

It won’t be a polite guest

It won’t sit in it’s corner

and play nice

It will want everything

Take everything

Rule anything you let it

It will grab at your neck

And hold on tight

It will overwhelm you

If you don’t put up a fight

It will eat you alive

Consume your entire being whole

It will dim your light

And darken your soul

It will take its time

To gather its friends

So you will be intimidated

To even think of trying again

So take your time

And draw that brake

Rein it in

And wrestle it to the ground

You are not the product of your mistakes

They are just a byproduct

of You


Your ultimate success.
