It is always a challenge dealing with any let down, especially in a medium that does not let you forget


How often those people who looked through that critical eye
Can verbally destroy but in doing anything will never try
As they seem not to want to take a dose of their own medicine
Dispense by another in a form of either destructive or constructive criticism

To those who believe that all they do must be nothing short of perfect
Will be very reluctant to take on any type of challenging project
Because they seem not to understand that in all aspects there is that reality
That in all we do not matter what failure is most like a probability

In our lives we are to a certain extend shaped by or culture
And it seem to have programmed many to feel inferior if there is a failure
Then there seem to be that laughter and rejoicing if it someone encounter
No one seem willing to say get up next time you will surely do better

But what about that part played in some cases by a parent
No matter what with children there will be some who may be different
If one happen to turn out to be the model that the parents want
This will be the yardstick used and those who fell below is subjected to taunt

It is very difficult to come good at that first outing
There will always be some trepidations and apprehensions in the initial learning
Even the master omniscient and omnipotent chose to take his time and very carefully
Created a world that is now most certainly enjoyed by you and me


Coping, Cultural, Failure, Let Down

Yes the idea is to understand that failure is an outcome also, but coping and some support one can press on.

Sometimes, Poetic, we have no choice. It is a good idea to have a "backup" person ready to take over if one finds that coping is impossible or the alternative is to drop dead.
