I Failed, But Won

Missed that one point on my test that would've made my score an A, 

I failed, but won. 

Suffered through a depression before my freshman year of college,

I failed, but won. 

Applied everywhere and still couldn't get a job, 

i failed, but won. 

Gained weight from being stressed all the time, 

I failed, but won. 

Not getting an A on that test made me feel like a failure, Depression made me feel like a failure, Not being able to get a job made me feel like a failure, letting stress consume my life made me feel like a failure.

But through all that I did the one thing that I had to do,

I stayed positive, 

I kept going, 

and by doing that..

I won.
