Success Is in the Start

Success is in the start and finish line
Any failure becomes a learned lesson
Successive lessons in not reaching the targeted goal
Are to stay on the path and to never give up
This might take sleeping on it
Waking up the next morning realizing the error that was done
Meditating on what changes could be made to
Add, subtract, divide, multiply or any other applications
Opening the self up to possibilities--
That conference you will attend next week
Talk to the person next to you
Share ideas
Answer the questions asked to the best of your ability
Be on the path of beauty
A path of rightness
Do not linger or wallow in
Not reaching the targeted goal
Life is a journey
Enjoy the journey
Savor the sweet smelling roses, the swaying palm trees
Along the way, remember that success comes through hard
Work, prayer and perseverance
Success is in the start and the finish line

I am a retired registered nurse reinventing my life in writing poetry. It helps me to express myself in any and every topic of interest. I am happy to be united in the company of poets. I pray and hope that I may go a long way on this walking path of poetry--one of beauty--thus turning my misery into my ministry.
