What is success without the taste of failure? It is a fight still waiting to be fought and won. A battle still strong. Fail to learn wisdom, the power of understanding and learning.   I failed and I failed, like failure came naturally to me.

Forgive

What is forgiveness? Is it the smile that crowds a gloomy face or is it the feather that forms in one’s heart?
