Kill off

Grooming myself for a career in failure,
I studied with masters.
Then I realized: they were successful.
For how would they otherwise be known?
There is a difference between the failures
of the successful and the failure of true failures.
A matter of sliding scale:
The failures of the successful are celebrated,
broadcast far and wide;
while the failures of failures are obscure,
buried with them when they die.

  1. John. I see a hole in your logic. By shear exposure to millions on the internet, I am quite sure that you are just as successful in failture as those you aspire to.
    Pray for my horse.

  2. I constantly spent my half an hour to read this blog’s content daily along with a
    cup of coffee.
