A Failure

“A failure you are,”
everyone keeps reminding me.
It’s been embedded in
every inch of my skull.

They keep telling me
that I can never succeed,
that I’ll never be good enough,
that I’ll always be a failure.

Little do they know
that they need not remind me this.
I already am aware of
how pathetically I’m losing.

  1. Who all are they who keep saying that? ups and down are two wheels of life…. every successful person faced failure in life wheather he is Mark Zuckerberg, Jackman, Oprah Winfrey even Amitabh Bachchan faced rejections. Failure is success in progress.

      I’m sorry you feel that way but just so you know, this feeling is only temporary. I’m sure you’re more then what you think of yourself 😊

    Words bring life or death. We can find comfort in the negative, while we walk cautiously in the positive. We need to put up fences to keep the negativity people spew on us. We can choose to move ahead despite others insecurity.

      Very true. It’s on us whether we choose to look on the bright or the negative side. And our life is what it is because of our choices.

    You know lovely, I’m the world of mathematics two negatives make a positive. So if they tell you that and you tell yourself that, then subconsciously you’ll push yourself to succeed just to disprove them. Misery loves company, everyone wants to see a hero fail, but it’s up to that hero to choose to either fly or become the villain. There’s no impossible, only I’m possible! ❤️

  5. This was sad and difficult to read. No one should ever tell you or anyone else they are a failure.

    You write so beautifully you are anything but a failure. Wishing you the best.

  7. And when I was demolished and despaired
    A hope came by like a morning charm
    And took me along along the way
    Reset my compass and made me tool
    Until I found my true north

    Always stay hopeful dear regardless of what the world says

  9. Always believe in your hard work..
    It’s you always who have done hard work to achieve your dreams..who are they to judge you..
    Just like a ship in the river sinks only when the outside water enters into it..in the same way when we allowed other’s points of view to enter in our mind then only we get depressed!
