'F' Is For: A Poem



How quickly I react.
F is for failure
I see it
And retract

Into myself, I see all the glares
One wild flame after another.
A burning house,
My heart is not a home.

I failed.
I fail.
I am not perfect,
 But I fight to be.

I know I can’t reach it internally,
But I strive for it academically.
What gives illusion of control
I run wild after.

F is for failure
But it could be for faithful
Love that never fades,
An imperfect life isn’t beyond repair. 

- Hannah
