Celebration for a graduation
Punishment for a mistake
We love to live in success, and spotlights;
And hate to be seen as failures
Which causes a question
Why don't we always try our hardest?
Constantly beating ourselves up
Just because we didn't do something right
does it seem right,
to be so harsh on ones self?
We may not always be able to try again
But can't we try new ideas and learn?
Perhaps we deserve what we do to ourselves
Perhaps we feel victimized by others
But our successes make us so happy
They are achievements that we did
Why should all those bad thoughts and failures weigh us down?
Forget them they don't make you feel good
Just think of all the people who are proud of you for what went right
Think about what you've done to make yourself happy
if the lives of people are good then they are successful
then they can proceed with more successes
