I could never truly revel
at my trivial successes
when the feeling of failure
was weighed so heavily on me.
The failure wasn’t internal
but one so wholesome, so universal
that not a soul could be left untouched.
The failing of humanity.
The world is filled with monsters
who’ve picked their prey.
A world that seems so distant,
that our mind reads it as fiction.
In the end however,
we are the chosen heroes.
And no success can ever make up
for us failing our duties to protect.
