Fallen from the highest peak

Crying angel without wings

Broken dreams inside a heart

Lost to hope and lost to pride


Unforgettable deception 

Piercing rage and endless shame

Evermore afraid to stand

For behind there lies the dark.


How can I believe in will? 

How must I remember faith? 

When by aiming for success,

I call upon me its painful shadow?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I haven't given up... And I eventually got back up... Still, it's hard to shrug off the pain and the disillusion once you've failed... That's why I write this poem... Not to encourage failure but to understand it, to learn how to see beyond the pain and see what it can teach...
