Satisfaction of Failure

Satisfaction of Failure

taking control
of your own happiness
will likely 
end in
failure

leaving control
of your happiness
to anyone
or anything 
else
will necessarily
end in
failure

at least
the failure
from taking control
of your own happiness
was a failure
of your own
creation
not the creation
of anybody else
who designed 
your failure
for you

if nothing else
take pride
in having the courage
to fail
in the flames
of your own
terms
as you most
likely
will

take pride
in the creation
of your own 
glorious failure
since there may be
nothing else

take pride
in the creation
of your own failure
have the courage
to hold onto it
caress and savor it 
for yourself
instead of 
giving it
away
for somebody else
to cherish
or perhaps
loathe you
for being so cowardly
as to transmit
like a disease
the labor and burden
of your
failed
happiness
onto
them

beware
of those
eyeing you
satisfied
content
in your glorious failure
to imagine
abandoning their happiness
on your doorstep
will somehow
make their failure
glorious
too
