A short poem

For those of us, those few dim lights,
Those who fail, falter, fade,
Stutter, stumble –
For those who attempt yet somehow
Fall short,
For those who stood and stared
Failure in the face,
There is nothing to compare
To that moment
When as we stare at Failure
And Failure stares at us,
We straighten, rise,
Strengthen, smile
And bid Failure good bye.
