Oft bitter failures
give one too many reasons
to chase sweet success!
Too many obstacles not to pursue further,
Discouraging rationale without failure,
How long can one succumb to defeat!
It’s not time to yield and depart!
Not when success allures from distance!
What if perseverance pays off at last!
Another attempt deserves a try,
Perhaps, the best shot waiting to be freed!
Joining Day 1 of Barathon presented by Blog-a-rhythm with a mix of haiku and poem combining the prompt – one too many and the theme – run/chase/marathon/sprint/dash.
