How Failures can Lead us to VIRTUOUS PATH : Poetry

Life keeps throwing many challenges before us only to teach us its beautiful precious lessons. But the question arises as to why this learning is necessary at all?


Most of us know what to do when we achieve our dreams or how to celebrate this virtue of life but what if the path taken by us leads nowhere or what if we could not attain what we want?


This backward push of life is the most important chapter of life and handling these situations gracefully is the real test. Let not negativity creep in and stride with more passion to move ahead. These poetic lines will surely give a way to handle the failures and lead a Virtuous Path.


Past or present,

Life is a never ending wet serum.

Tastes bittersweet at times,

But attach beautiful learnings of miles.


Win win situation when in,

Celebrations always creep in.

Confidence smears our heart,

To leap even more fast.


But coin has its other side too,

Circumstances arouse a downfall of steep queue.

Monumentous efforts will not wash away any pain,

Path sometimes has a trodden stain.


Strong mind and resilient heart is the need,

Difficult path may lead to slowed speed.

Mark this landmark of informal learning,

So that there is no negative turning. 


Smell this virtue of life's backward ride,

Oh girl! you will surely stridulate with pride.


Learnings and failures in the life path are only turns that give us life lessons and make us mark that as speed breaker where the next onward journey is beautiful. If you liked this poetry then you will also surely like the poetry Love Thyself
