Yes life hurls stones and pebbles
fate bombards proxies, follies
phonies but hold on….
I am a sucker for one more!
I devour failure like a hungry
homeless for I’ve nothing to eat
so I gulp every failure down my
parched throat till the-bitter liquid
of failure syncs-with the juices in
my emaciated stomach…
Oh! It churns, it widens but I ask
for more, I ask for more! I am a
sucker for all the losings humans
are capable of! I tasted sweet
success this morning when I took
that hard stone on my heart,
laughed at one more lie, swallowed
one more bitter pill, devoured
one more failure down my throat!
I am a sucker!
