Floating in the Emerald Kindgom



Is this you I see in the hollow space

Almost disappearing without a trace

Far beyond the forest bridge

Is it you that hides among the trees

Enjoying the mellow morning breeze

In the depth of the emerald kingdom

Is this your voice singing a tune

Merrily in the month of June

Soothing all the passersby

Is this you upon the lake

Floating like a single flake

Enchanting all who behold your grace

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.” – J.K. Rowling (Harvard Speech)

Failing to understand, failing to succeed

Fearing the failure that did the deed

Burying yourself and dying inside

So as not face it, you choose to hide

But you will soon learn that this very failure will help you stride
