Failure

December 13, 2007
By Annie Renfei Zhang, Laramie, WY

The sound of shattering glass pierces the air
As my dreams come crashing down around me
My ambitions have come to a stop
Killed by failure, my dreaded enemy
But failure is something we can’t avoid
So please tell me, what am I to do?
We are to learn from each of our mistakes
As long as the sky above is blue
As figure skaters must fall to learn a jump
Likewise, we benefit from failure, too.
Successes and failures – a part of life
Second chances – new with each morning’s dew
So learn from failures, like a skater
And it will bring you successes later
