What's Your Level

To Succeed You Will Experience Failure

What's Your Level?

A very free form poem about trying to hit your target and find your level of success.

This is also an excuse for me to share the wonderful β€œWhat’s Your Level?” by Thousand Yard Stare.

I command You

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I

Wanted

Write

A

One

Word

Poem

+

But too many Words Came Out

+

I Failed In My Goal

I Failed In My Target

I Failed

I Just Failed

+

Or Maybe I didn’t

+

What is Failure

+

It Is A Word

+

It describes a situation

Where the Path Was Wong

The Way Was Wrong

+

Failure Showed Me

I need to try another way

+

And That Way May Fail As Well

+

They who never try may never fail

But they will never succeed

+

The road to success is paved with failures

They built the road that made you succeed

    Loved the music to go with the read - see I listened, lol! Also loved how the beginning naturally led to those end lines, which were just what I needed to hear. Thanks!
