Now weak, but with training- proper practice,

I'll become strong.

I've fallen- haven't broken anything.


But in time, after the embarrassment I'll stand up.

Things aren't going my way…


I shall take a step back, analyze my

options then choose a new path.

Expectations are a burden placed on the shoulders of us all.

By others, and the most heavy by ourselves.

Some will accept the challenge without complaint or hesitation.

Sadly, many will accept they've failed, with absence of ever trying.

I sometimes stand still and try to understand the latter…

Then I realize; I am standing still.

Coping with any answer to why am I feeling defeated, melancholy- to struggle is enough…

So far-be-it that I find a suitable answer for persons who've long given up.
