The struggle and self-realisation


When we are young, we all have dreams

An aim of where we want to be

From doctors to rappers

From actors to accountants


The inception in the mind

Is just the start


Now the struggle begins

Gymnastics start to train

The hours are sacrificed

The time runs away

Sometimes so fast,

You can’t recognise yourself in the mirror


The time has come

If you are going to succeed

It is going to be now or never


Sometimes unfortunately

You mess up

Your dreams have not come true


You are now at the second stage


Failure teaches us to find a different way

Failure can sweep kick you

Until you hit the floor


The third stage

Do you know rest and try again

Or do you just sit on the floor

With the look of defeat on your face


Next stage

In the middle of all the pain, grief, regrets

One of the greatest gifts are given

The gift to find out who you really are

You might find a new passion that will ignite your heart

You might find a new love to raise you up


It is only through the darkest times you can find the light


Some people may succeed in everything in life

But if you ask them

Who are you?

They won’t have an answer


Pain and failure gives us the opportunity to find self-realisation
