They tell us to pursue our dreams
but they seldom tell us how
So we hit the hard way: Failure.
The Scientific Method tells us
Failure is good. Failure is right. Failure is Necessary.
Society – and our parents – tell us — …
“Failure” rolls around in the brain like rocks smashing walls
repeating and repeating and repeating and repeating
It tears at us until we want to give up
but we keep on pursuing
pushing against laughter and criticism and rolled eyes and snobbery.
“‘Hope’ is[n’t] the thing with Feathers”
It’s the thing with Heart.
