Voices of Failure

Don’t let that which I failed at
be the sum of who I am

Your judgments always
so final and convincing.

A voice booming confident
commenting on every
whisper and thought.

All my successes
won only by mistake
or a clerical error.

Opportunities seen wonderful
and effortlessly within my grasp
revealed my your words
as meant for someone else,
impossible for me
to touch.

Who are you?
But, the creaks and groans
of some antiquated machine
long since destined
to a scrap yard.

Who is it you think
You are?
You! – Those voices
screaming from the
dark corners of
my mind.
