The Secret of My Failure

I kept aside / I hid my shame …

I kept aside
I hid my shame
The whole world (but not me)
To blame

I sang my songs
To nobody
And spent days (but not nights)
Lightly

I turned around
And, seeing me
I knew then (sort of knew)
Sadly

In molten life
I was but dross
And would be (patently)
A loss

      1. I don’t think of failures as “spectacular” but they were certainly hard lessons that I learned from. And I only learn from myself. And happy thanksgiving day! 🍗
