And I

I’ll tell you a secret.

It’s a simple secret, so I’ll tell it simply.

Everyone fails.

Even the scion of the coming day.

Everyone fails.

And mostly we fail to ourselves.

What matters is not the failing, the falling down

What matters is the getting up

Is the trying
one

more

time

Like Eleanor of Aquitaine

I know defeats

But I keep trying

Against all odds
and Against all wisdom

I keep trying

And if all that trying is but prelude to more falling down

I will fall down going forward

God Willing

I will fall down going forward

“And I
Have seeeen
thelast
Hurrah
of virtues
path
Well trod

And I
Have seeeen
thelast
Hurrah
of those
who followed
God”
