You can’t take a chasm in small steps

It has to be one giant leap only

It’s not that I have not made mistakes

I can’t even say I have not repeated my mistakes

You name them I have made them all

Along with my propensity for mistakes

I seem to have also acquired a skill for

Course correction

Surgically precise



Survivor I am

Each time I challenge me

On my pain tolerance

Each time I surprise me

Raising the bar

For a physical coward that I am

I seem to feed on mental pain

For the secure person that I am

I seem to be cavalier about my self-esteem

But up to a point only

No calibrated threshold

A simple law of survival

My tomorrow should be better than yesterday
