Learning Isn't Losing

i say i want it, i want it
i don't want to stop now
i dip my toes into the cold pond
wade out of the comfort zone
cold water rushes into my lungs
the first time, i make the mistake of tripping over the drop
this time, i know where it is
i never lost
i learned

i'm so scared, so scared
my knees shake and my eyes fill with tears
what if i fail? what if i'm too weak?
maybe i'll end up coming in first
but if i don't
i'll find out
i will find out
why i came in last
and i won't make the same mistake

you never lose if you learn


to anyone who dreams big, don't get discouraged <3

    but the words that went along with it were lovely as well <3

    1. Thanks, Faith! Amazing what the timer on an iPhone can do. ;)
      Thank you, again, for your kind wishes.

  2. This was such a beautiful poem Eowyn!!
    It really touched me. I want to go on Broadway one day, and I just don't know how to get there, or anything at all! All I know is I love to sing and act, and why not shoot high?

  3. Love this poem so much!!
    "i'm so scared, so scared
    my knees shake and my eyes fill with tears
    what if i fail? what if i'm too weak?" That is such a good line. <33 The whole thing is beautifully written. Great work! And good point about never loosing if you learned something . . . that's brilliant.
