Peace in Failure

I think there is peace
in failure,
when it finally appears,
no longer looming
darkly in the distance,
when it comes
with its toothless bite.
I tried so hard
to keep it away,
but it was always closing the gap.
I need it to be okay,
so I can stop fighting,
stop trying to prove
that I am good enough
when I am not.
Failure is a dark creature,
but it holds a mirror
and when it catches up to you,
you see yourself as you are.
I dream of new days,
heavenly days,
with roaring smiles
under golden sunbeams.
But the journey must begin
with the man that I am.
