Stepping stone

Over the years
when you’ve suffered a setback,
and the reason for it
seemed unknown.
Did you ever consider
that it was a lesson
and that failure’s a stepping stone?

How you respond
and what you learn from it,
shows the world how much
you have grown.
You’ll climb a bit higher
toward the peak of success
making failure a stepping stone.

For you make the choice,
in the way that you see it.
It is your decision alone.
You can stall in self-pity
or keep moving upward
making failure a stepping stone.

So join all the people
who’ve ever succeeded,
and practice
the courage they’ve shown.
Learn from your losses
but keep climbing higher,
and make failure your stepping stone.
