Beyond Failures

Sometimes I write a lot, sometimes I don’t, at all,
What life brings us to, is a surprise, don’t you think?
A prompt, an experience, a moment of joy or love,
We all have something which makes us write…

Today, let me speak of my failures though not in detail,
I have failed a lot, in love, in work, at reality or dreams,
Yet it reminds me every time of who I want to be,
Is it really a failure or a realization too hard?
We all have something which makes us want to scream…

Change, every time we do, for it evolves us for real,
Horrid consequences, serendipity or just a little numbness,
If you pack it all in a box to open later,
We all have something which makes us mentally fitter…

To conclude and come to the point, I just need a few more words,
Never stop yourself from expressing to anyone,
Find a friend, a family member or sometimes even people you don’t like,
We all have something which makes us a better forgiver…

    Ashwin that was the best way to look at the failures…lets call them “Realisations”! The failures bring out the real, bare me. Accepting it and moving ahead becomes easy if we term it “realisation”.

    The last lines of each para… especially to be mentally fitter and better forgiver is what I am working on and as usual – a lovely poem.

    The last line was the most impactful for me.. our shortcomings do make us better at forgiving
