Unexpected failure | Poem
A poem about success, boundless pride, adulation of society and sudden tragedy.
I believed in myself too much,
While flying higher in the sky.
Higher in the sky of success,
Farther from the crowd of mortals.
I received praises too much,
When news spread like a wildfire.
Wildfire, powerful but blind,
Burned everything on its path.
I soared in the sky,
and roared like a lion.
I heard endless claps,
Until the thunder came.
It hurt my wings so deep,
I collapsed to the abyss.
In the dark I weep alone,
All my glory has gone.

Your comments are beyond my expectations.. you have already taken me to the sky with your words
If a writer can pen words that is the manifestation of his intensive inner conscious,then this fellow writer will always be by your side,just as the moonshine outstreches its noctilucent light infinitely on the universe.

Hey! That was a really good story about success and failure. I have this feeling that if you put 3rd stanza before the 2nd one it would be much better in terms of the events order. A suggestion. And also your blog is great!
Thank you so much
