Daily missive for Tuesday the 10th of December.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Tuesday the 10th of December.

When disappointment
Feels like a virtue
It is so easy to forget
How it feels to succeed
Wary of false promise
Too afraid to believe
Success is ever deserved
Defeat a default
More familiar than euphoria
Nothing is a given
Hard work
May not bring its own reward
Ask the bonded slave
The sickly in a land of plenty
It is a lie told by
Those who found a way
To break the system
For themselves
Until they climbed a ladder
Pulled it up
Behind them
Like a drawbridge
Well perhaps some do
But for the most part
It is not true
Good people deserve
All the plaudits
They receive
What kept them going
Was a modicum
Of self-belief
Confidence that was shaken
But not destroyed
There is no failure
Just experimentation
Never repetition
Without revision
A piece of good fortune
Need not be decried
A helping hand denied
Perseverance underrated
Or timing,
Underestimated
