Favorite Quote:
"'But man is not made for defeat... A man can be destroyed, but not defeated.'" - Ernest Hemingway (The Old Man and the Sea)


I’m not sure when,
But one time,
A girl lived who had one flaw:

She tried too hard.

She wanted to be the best.
She needed to be the best.
She wanted the world to remember her forever.

Everything she did, she did seriously.
She never learned to relax.

She took everything personally.
She never learned to relax.

She repeatedly tried hard,
But no matter how many times she tried everything,
Nothing worked in her favor.

People feel joy from many things,
And one’s passion is what a
Person loves the most.

She never felt joy in anything,
Never had a passion,
And never loved.

She died having accomplished nothing.
