Try

Ignore the whispers lurking in the background,

Pretend they're not there, not really a sound

Willing to have a go, willing to fail

Prepared to succeed, hoisting my sail

At least I'm trying! I want to scream

More than they'll do even in dreams

I sail, I soar, I fail, I hit the floor

I rise again, no time to waste

Eager for another taste

I TRY! 

N.Sexton

The End
