I once had more confidence.
Free of arrogance, my intelligence allowed me great prominence.
I felt as if there was no obstacle strong enough to detour my path.
I lost track, and lately, I have taken several steps back.
To regain my poise, I meditate and recall moments of joy.
Where is my bliss? Why do I seal assurance in aside shallow material gifts?
My desire has changed. No longer is the deed to my home, my life’s claim.
I seek education, and within time, I no longer feel shame.
Self-belief is still within me. I have not lost my confidence; it was asleep, dormant and dreary.
Disappointment can block the positive growth within.
So, in life if you want to win, you must, “Try Try Again!”
