Questions We Avoid Answering

Why do we cry,
when we get hurt?
Why do we smile,
when we feel happy?
 
Why do we laugh,
when we hear a joke?
Why do we bluff,
when being challenged?
 
Well. . .
 
We shed tears
to wipe away the pain.
 
We stretch the corners of our mouth and show teeth
to show others our amusement.
 
We allow a chuckle to escape from our mouth
to embrace our humor.
 
We over exaggerate on a dare
so we can feel significant and bold.
 
But my real question is:
Why do we fear failure?
 
Well for starters, no one likes to  lose, but morally because our soul wouldn't want anything more than to kick Failure in the face and scream "Ain't nobody got time for that!"
 
While Success encourages our mind to sore to the sky,
Failure evokes Procrastination to yank us drown.
 
While Success cheers us on,
Failure discourages us, and we give up.
 
While Success rewards us for achieving our goal,
Failure threatens us not to try.
 
But the one thing Failure nor Success can't do is choose for us.
 
We've fallen, gotten scraped up, had stormy days, lost some battles, and had no clue what the hell was going on, but we can't make a positive without a negative.
 
We have knees for a reason;
they're bendable because we were made to never kneel to a loss.
 
Although band-aids are man made,
they are made to heal our sores.
 
With every storm,
is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
 
Any battle we lose,
wasn't made for a winner.
 
Along with every achievement and success,
comes a unthinkable and unbearable journey.
 
And even though most people have all five senses, all of the successful ones were blind and deaf because no one knows what Life will say or do.
