Is not our destiny emboldened by failures,
Our willingness to succumb to self-doubt and pity,
This affords us nary a benefit.
I ask, to what then do we owe our failures?
Profound gratitude comes first to mind,
A hearty handshake,
A warm pat on the back for the lesson learned.
Strengthening character through adversity, we thrive
Redirecting destiny in the direction of our choosing,
Revoking it’s privilege to capitalize on our fears,
We take charge of the path we travel.
We sway our very circumstance.
