discovering your talents
Crushed by failure,
an ego shattering,
Judged on the surface, each endevour appears to be executed
by an incompetent ne’er-do-well,
trying yet again and floundering.
The result is a fiasco, debacle, catastrophe, disaster, blunder,
a plain old botch up.
Call it a washout, dead duck or a lead balloon.
By any other name, it is still
Upon further reflection,
this apparent lack of success,
is not a result of a lack of talent,
a fish wanting to fly in the air.
He will look like a genius
he discovers a unique way
