Failure

By: Alex Oh


We all hate to fail

Some more than others

It’s what focuses us on every detail


The fear of failure

It causes many to suffer

Or leaves some a lot paler


It’s not easy

Living in a world filled with fear

When life seems anything but breezy

The expectations are always so high

It seems like there’s no escape

Why even try


But you have to try

You can’t give up

You can’t just cry


Maybe someday things will be easier

All the expectations gone

Just eating ice cream by the freezer


Until then we must do our best

To manage all the stress

And to focus on the positives, focus on feeling blessed
