If “failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor” (Truman Capote), how spicy do you like your success stories?
When I was given the title of ‘Miss SUGAR & SPICE’ during my class tenth farewell
Least I knew the meaning of sugar and spice, everything around me blended well
I was the House captain, cultural secretary, an acclaimed debater, academically well
A curious mind, a youthful soul, a heart to love, a dream to live, a thought to dwell
A burning desire, creative side screaming to bloom, kind conscious pure like pearl
All set to walk ahead onto the road led to destination, courage was my shining jewell
Failure? Alien to me, Success I was sure, eyes so bright, feet too light, I matter ! I yell
Never say die attitude, struggles to deal, difficult decisions, stepped out of cozy shell
Life moved on, time flew, grey hairs, wisdom tooth, grown up kids, responsibilities fell
Loving soulmate, treasured friends, understanding parents, reliable siblings easy jell
Now of course I understand the concept of sugar and spice, it add color to life so spell
Failure spoils the harmony, Success sugary coated, I wonder how nice, sweet, its smell
To conclude I would say,
Like water, dealt in moderation, cannot hurt anybody.
I would like my story to have authentic flavors of mixed herbs, spicy yet healthy
If courage is resistance to fear then success is surely not absence of fear, be ready.
