Trying

I saw another tower fall,
When suddenly it occurred to me:
It doesn’t matter if we fail,
It’s trying that’s the victory.

Another struggle, on our own,
Or with a group convening:
Our lives have ends, as stories do,
And that’s what gives them meaning

Outside, the world is chaos, true;
Inside, the battle rages —
It’s trying that makes up the plot
And fills up all the pages

Another effort all gone wrong,
I’ll think of it no longer,
Instead, I’ll maybe try again
And get a little

Stronger
