Ace of Failure

I am smart. I am talented. I can do anything... anything, except succeed.

I don't know why but it seems that I am an ace of failure.

No, I am not trying to invite negative vibes like what some pundits are always trying to put it. I'm venting out here, for pizza's sake. Don't you guys know the meaning of respecting other people's feeling?

Okay, now where was I?

Oh yes, I'm nowhere, actually. This post will not go far, I'm sure you can sense that. I am just ranting, and even in ranting I am failing.

I know, someday it will get better. I've been reciting that mantra since... well, since time immemorial! Fooling myself that it will indeed get better someday.

I won't lie, I've seen better days and then clouds will come.

I don't know, maybe I am indeed inviting negative vibes.

I don't know.

I don't care.

Be thankful? Really?

Sometimes, when I rant... when I complain... when I feel burdened by overwhelming problems... some well-meaning friends would come to me... try to console me and say... “You should be thankful. Others have it worse.”

I know they mean well... but really?

Be thankful?

I feel sorry for them that they may be burdened too... and yes, maybe they have it worse. But be thankful that I am not where they are? Be thankful that they have it worse?

I don’t think so.

Let Him Fly

Let Him Fly
by Royverine

Don’t hold his wings
Let him fly
For wings are made
So birds can fly
Don’t let him fear the wind
Teach him how to glide
Trust you’ve shown enough
Trust you taught him enough
It’s how it should go
You can’t hold him forever
Let go
Let him fly
