488. My life-boat and my soul-boat

O failure’s life,
Although your existence
Is grief in reality,
Yet you live so long.

O victory’s heart,
Although your existence
Is abiding reality,
Yet you seem so brief.

O failure’s life,
I need you
To make my life-boat
Strong and solid.

O victory’s heart,
I need you
To make my soul-boat
Undeniable and unmistakable.
