Fiasco

Fiasco

A Poem by Sami Khalil
"

You inspire people more than perfection by managing your failures and imperfections and learning wise lessons from them...

"


Fiasco/……….By Sami Khalil

We can all turn failures into successes with a will and patience.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

Neither eagerness nor cries will to occlude

Caprices of duffers…gamblers’ misfortunes

Neither gold nor lust placed on the guddee

Fade not away while kings and queens brood.

 

Oh, great sky! What shall in your hues foresee?

Healing benevolence of love or death’s shades

What shall the expanse banter of our destiny

When signs of restlessness cover the marquee?

 

And which fiascoes by unseen faces do disgrace?

But the trying hands who abandon all selfish ways

For worthy of life who renounce not their failures

But see promises of a new day, hope and a place.

Sami Khalil,
What an interesting packet of possibility. It seemed to like permission being granted to change our minds and make an about face from where we were. Admitting we are going the wrong way, stop and consider and remake whater plan we had and simply go towards a better place. Anyway I am not sure if that is exactly where you were coming from but that was my take. Thanks for a great poem. I truly enjoyed it...................Blessings to you Kathy

Genuine optimism; hopeful pragmatism.
A wise lovely-of-lyric affirmation that moving honestly--unflinchingly--forward may well be what eventually justifies past "missteps." Admittedly, we are irresistibly future bound--the attitude we take with us, however, often determines the outcome.
Gratifying read, Sami!

There is an antique, almost Shakespearian touch about it, in the way you structured the lines and used the words. I like the line "and which fiascoes by unseen faces do disgrace".

"And which fiascoes by unseen faces do disgrace?

But the trying hands who abandon all selfish ways

For worthy of life who renounce not their failures

But see promises of a new day, hope and a place."- Hope in the face of disaster... Hoping I find this in my life, too! Thanks for writing.

"If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;

Shall I compare ye to a summer's day or to Rudyard Kipling Sami ? Either way, this is ethically edifying poetry and may I wish you a happy & prosperous New Year dear poet ! 👑
