Poems and Short Quips - 20. Efforts

The best laid plans

oft fall short of their mark –


Demons still haunt

Voices still taunt.


When push comes to shove

My efforts still fail.

in so very few words, you show us pain of the past, is not so far removed from the present. those demons can grab you by the neck and slam your head to the ground. you didn't fail, the voices lied.

Sir, I'm not sure how to take this. You're man of many great qualities. Picking me up in need. Failure brings contemplation, determination, strength and courage. Most important, often another chance. Be well and much love.

Poignant and  powerful. We cannot succeed at everything we undertake but in planning and doing , there is no failure , even if the result is different from the initial vision.

There's not much i can say, Sir, that hasn't already been said and sometimes i have a hard time finding the words. I hope that getting your thoughts out help you. Well written, Sir.

Your words leave no doubt as to the depth of how you're feeling. That makes my immediate response one of empathy.
