5388. I have failed becauseI have failed,
Not because I have not attempted.
I have attempted time and again
Soulfully, even sleeplessly.
I have failed
Because I have not made even one attempt
At my Lord Supreme’s choice Hour.
What was I trying to accomplish?
I was trying to reach
The summit-height of Heaven.
