One Thousand Falls

A poem about overcoming failures

What do you do when

You’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work

And you keep failing, time after time….again

Do you give up in despair, curse or go completely beserk

Or do you welt and fall over

Like a fading flower

What do you do….

Do you try again with your face set in a rictus grin

Do you double down, heels in and stick up your chin

It’s not how many times you fall that you should consider

But the fact you kept going with shoulders pressed against the rudder

It’s the man who rises to his feet after each and every fall

Who will accomplish his prize and be the envy of all

So keep going when you feel like quitting

The winning is in not quitting, times a thousandth times ten
