Read Poem by Owen Aldin

Without defeats,

How is success defined?

If we don’t learn,

How can we rise?

A thousand no’s,

For just one yes.

Every victory,

Brings a much sterner test.

Saddled with doubt,

At directionless signs.

Trapped at a crossroad,

Courage left in the distance.

Continued ignorance,

Of struggles and strains.

As we seek the answers,

The questions change again.

Invisible baggage,

We continue to hold.

A suitcase of pains,

Weigh greater than gold.

The trail behind,

Might reek of failure,

Yet in the muddy reflection,

There stands your saviour
