Expected Failure

by rosenvegas (writer), Las Vegas, NV, July 08, 2011

When all else fails...shift gears, change direction.

She cries alone, so no one will see.

Screams to release the heartache within her.

Mascara burning her eyes, running down her face.

Overcome with disappointment, heartache.

The utter exhaustion of hopelessness.

Reality sets in.

Accomplishments line her office.

Ranked amongst the best.

Beat the odds and rose to success,

At work, with family, and personally.

Was it sufficient? No, not ever.

Turned her back on those undeserving,

Focused on creating her life,

Only to find the same disappointment

Repeating itself over and over.

No matter what she does,

No matter what she gives,

No matter what she sacrifces,

No matter how she grows.

She will never be enough.

She will always fail. Why?

One must measure themselves

Agains't their own expectations.

Not those who take take take.

"One must measure themselves

Agains't their own expectations."

Sheer profundity in eight words!

Wish more of us could learn this sooner rather than later!

Great work!
