Is It possible I Will Fail?


My body is worn,

After beginning life in a ditch

And climbing, and falling back, and squirming when necessary,

To meet the sky after 30 years,

as I stand.

And begin to bring light and sound to the ditches assigned to the young,

My legs tremble.

I could fall,

But failure, is determined

By how I define my goals

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
