Climbing the ladder of Success

Climbing the ladder of Success

A Poem by midnight mystry

A loving mother’s warm palm

Was placed on disappointed son’s arm

She said to him “Pay attention child

What I’m about to tell is the truth of life

I know that you have failed today

But tomorrow it would be yesterday

And this is not the end of your story

Always believe that you are meant for glory

Remember in pursuit of success you think, is the true delight

Don’t miss to enjoy the struggle that is your tale’s highlight

You would fail a hundred times

Before you get an opportunity to shine

And before you ever give up too fast

Don’t forget chances are always second-last

When your curiosity reaches its asperity

Keep in mind confusion leads to clarity

There would be times when you would think you are such a mess

But that means you are climbing the ladder of success

Where you have to make failure your ally

Because until you reach the rock bottom, you can’t touch the sky”
