a loser

you surely have won and are at a place i have longed to be at, all my life..
they say, and as they say, you are a gifted soul..
you have got a good strategy, and an attitude to conquer and make everything of the opportunity that comes to you..
now you are at the peak of the mountain,
while im lost here in the doldrums of the desert.

you struck the right gold soon..
and listened to, and followed the paths winners have laid..
while i went wherever my wavery mind took me,
a big risk for a person like me..with no one to guide

i have, indeed blundered unforgivably in my past..
have been too complacent, and im paying for it
but what matters the most to me, is that
i know why my present is, the way it is

i havent earned a millionth of what u now possess,
but i have learnt about my secret treasure..
the bundles of mistakes i have made,
both by lack of chance, and lack of sense..

now, failure is one's biggest fear,
for u suffer a lot from the fall from the peak.
u for sure, have a great life up there..
but im proud that life has made
that fear a habit,
now immune in me..

i might never be able to reach the cliff on which u r,
but, i shall, someday, find the right 'road not taken',
and make a hillock of my own,
atop of which, i can see the once-scary desert
as a silent distant route

and shall cherish the feeling
that you've probably never been aware of-
-or perhaps you have forgotten,
that once, long ago, for a moment or so, you were lost like i am..
those like u have once been someone just like me,
looking up to the mountain--
a loser
