Success

    ©  winter of 1976

 
Don't be afraid to fail
  Or your dreams you'll cease to strive
Heed not the mockings of those
  Who really are not alive
 
 Look not to the side for direction
  To the lamb-skinned wolves nearby
Who say that they do speak the truth
  But devour with a lie
 
Look above for your direction
  To the star in the sky
And don't be afraid to fail
  And be not afraid to try!

 Thought:

"Blessed in the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    nor standeth in the way of sinners,
    nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
 But his delight is in the law of the Lord;
    and in His law doth he meditate day and night.
 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
     that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
     his leaf also shall not wither:
     and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
"
              Psalm 1:1-3 (KJV)
