Failure and success are twins.

Phobia, Unclever

by Stuart Witt

Failure, I fear.

But if I don't try, I fail.

If I try too hard, that's hardly ideal.

I need goals. I need roles.

But I need to be relaxed.

Pressure too high and I become comic relief.

Mount Everest or a more manageable trek?

My ends and my means need to match.

I am a human being.

I need to move forward.

But I don't wish to get hurt.
