failures to courage to inspiration

How many times
did I fail?
oh I cannot use my fingers adding my toes
to count them.

how many times 
did I crash?
at work, with friends and love...
the count of the sand is an exaggeration to compare
but I feel like that much.

How many times
did I have my face flat on the ground
or on the wall?
another hyperbole
but maybe like the count of my hair.

times that I thought I cannot stand anymore
and days like there is nothing good to tomorrow
are just too many to count
and still they come once and a while...

But you know what,
I am what I am today
because of the good and the bad
that I have been through.

Suz said, "You are wonderful to read, kind and sensible,"
Chiccoreal commented, "It is easy to fall in love with you!"
Kaykuala, my Pareng Hank expressed,
"you are lovable in all aspect and respect."
Steven uttered, "you are awesome and you will be loved"
and lastly JC said, "JJ is a Gem!"

My failure gave me strength to stand,
My Strength gave me the courage
to brush away the dust of fears and failures,
and that courage and your love and support my family and friends
gave me the Inspiration!
