Onwards This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Forge onwards, leave nothing longed for,
It's better if you humiliate yourself in front of your goals
And shame your pride
In return for the long-lost humanity of those who live
life by trial and error,
Unafraid of failure, but not satisfied with it,
Either,
Looking back only to
Learn.

I love the moral you flaunt in this piece. It's so TRUE, too, which endears the poem to me. Congrats on the award!

You have taught me that even though Life is a labyrinth that only way to learn from LIfe is by trial and error. There are no easy ways out. Nor should there be. This is a fanstatic poem. Your wording is lifting. The way in which you speak to your readers is not patronizing but as though you're relating with them. 5/5. Congrats on yet another Editors' Choice.
