They say that to err is human,
and doubtlessly that's true,
but what they forgot to tell you
is that mistakes mean growth for you.
Failure never means defeat,
and to slip is never a sin;
instead, it's a chance to get back up
and climb the hill again.
Take the setbacks in stride
and make failure a time of reflection.
Remember that it takes practice
should you hope to gain perfection.
Even if you veer from the path
and find yourself astray,
if you hold your dream dear,
you'll eventually find the way.
And when you look back to the trials you endured in the past,
it will be such an incredible feeling,
to know that you made it at last.
