Poems

Proud

Tried, and failed,
Maybe it was the first attempt,
Maybe it wasn’t
Most stop after that attempt
When the result does not match the expectations
When failing again is not desired

It’s not necessary to be happy only when you succeed, celebrate the failures too

Success is desired by one and all,
But most want it the easy one,
Without working for it,
Without working at all.
But that’s not how it works,
Because trying is involved, and sometimes failing is important too.

It’s not necessary to be happy only when you succeed, celebrate the failures too

Those that keep trying
Understand where they’re going wrong.
They work on improving and being better.
That’s how they get the desired results.
That’s what leads to more happiness than instant success.
That’s what makes them proud, that’s what makes others proud of them too.

It’s not necessary to be happy only when you succeed, celebrate the failures too

Note: With this poem in the emotive poetry series, I have experimented with The Bop form to define the associated emotion.
