Learning to Fail

Careless wishes

To desire patience is to invite adversity

To want grace begs humiliation

To long for mastery calls mistakes

There is no other way to learn

Or become better

But through the rough

Thus, we stand in the spotlight

Gear failing on the stage

Fumbling for chords

Stammering lines

Out of tune

Out of rhythm

Ploughing forward

Disaster upon disaster

Teaching us that it is not the end

This

Imperfection

This

Being human

This

Striving

Against the odds of ourselves

Weeping and laughing

Losing and winning

Another step forward

Learning to fail

Learning grace

Learning patience

This grand experiment

Success is on the other side somewhere

Across the bridges built

Brick by brick

Try by try

Redoubled effort

Persistence

Hope rises to answer

Each careless wish

By learning to fail

We learn to fly
