An Unexpected Goal

Somewhere there’s a recipe,

Solutions for your life,

A walkthrough to your victory,

An antidote to strife.

Today I build a fire

To light me on the trail

To find instead the recipe

Detailing how to fail.

If there is a flawless guide

Describing how to win

It cannot be of value

To those who look within.

To pass without a challenge

And to win what can’t be lost…

What value is a victory

Attained without a cost?

No master has deficiency;

No one has conquered failing.

My torch shines bright in search of plight.

Here’s hope for stormy sailing!
