Failure

Stretching, reaching, make believing
Picturing triumphant future
Hungry to live in the
Perfect moment of success.
Snag hit, damnit, sinking pit
Unforeseen detour pending
Hard to see this as a
Bump and not the end.

(This is my October 5th contribution for Poem A Day October. The writing prompt was: Write about failure.)
