One Good Thing

It seems as though

I cannot succeed without a failure.

 

To gain flowers that I must hide

Instead of nurture within the sun,

To gain more confidence and pride

Only to have to snuff it out,

To realize more about myself,

Yet pushing it deep inside.

 

I wish I could just have one good thing

Something that I could sing

Out into the crowd

Without having to worry

About anything else.
