You tried your very best, but

Somehow it was not enough

In those minutes, those hours

When you had your chance to shine,

It falls apart, it comes to pieces

And dreams now hang, on the line.


All that time spent chasing stars,

Eyes set on the future you

Abandoned the present and

Now, battles fought for nothing,

You’re left wondering –

Can you still reach, what you sought?


Fallen, your greatest struggle now

Is not to catch the moon, but

Just to stay sane and hope

That tomorrow’s sun will rise,

Bright and glorious, guiding you

Away from further demise.


Yet perhaps this was meant to be,

A failure designed to show you

The frailty of an outcome, and

Teach those hungry eyes to see

That perhaps it is in other places

You’ll find joy resides.
