Failed Before

Fear is crashing on me like a wave

Saying that I’m not enough

Saying I’m still not enough

 

It reminds me I’ve never been brave

Tells me that it’s just too much

Something new is just too much

 

But then I see the clouds in the sky break up

And if there’s hope then really I don’t need luck

So who’s to say that I’m ever not enough

Because when I keep trying it makes me tough

 

So forget all the voices up in my head

Saying I failed before, because I can mend

And then I’ll get back up and I’ll try again

Because one bad moment is not the end

 

I won’t let one failure become the end!

This poem is about: 
Me
