Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Advantage”

From here.

Life is a constant struggle

Climbing, falling

Most want only to

Ascend

Understandable

Who doesn’t want to¬†flourish

To win

You cannot succeed

If you do not try

Likewise

You cannot succeed

If you do not fail

Failure is always an option

Because each time you fail

You gain something

For the next attempt

To help you succeed

And that is how

You take advantage

Of what life throws your way

You may not always achieve

A goal may remain unattainable

For some time

Days, months, years

But without starting

You will never reach

The end
