I wore this veil everywhere I went
I was masked completely in it
It was so thick and dark
But I wore it
I remained in it
I was lost in it

It flowed covering my eyes I couldn't see
My nose stuff in it and I was choking
My lips weren't any better I couldn't speak
My ears were completely hid in it that I couldn't hear
My hands and legs lost in it so I couldn't move

I felt empty
Yet I celebrated it
I also defended it
And it was killing me
It kept me bound like a slave

I struggled to move
Like a child learning to walk
I fell several times
I struggled to live in it
My instinct wouldn't let me die

I needed to live
I made another move
I stumbled and fell again
Then came a tear
So little but it made the difference
So little but I saw a glimpse of light
I tried to stand
A further tear
It became brighter

Light looked beautiful
It looked colorful
I tore it off my face
Now hungry for more
More of what the tear had

Deep fresh breath
I felt refreshed
I heard distinctly
I understood
I spoke clearly
It made meaning
Like a desperate prisoner seeking for freedom
I dropped the veil
And took a walk
I walked away
Walked into freedom

Knowledge gave me freedom
Knowledge is power

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
