Indeed, if I keep trying even in failure eventually I can prevail…it’s when I give up thay I have failed. Thank you for this haiku!! Well said! Reply J C says: October 2, 2015 at 8:05 am Uh huh. My imagination can picture this old man’s frustration, and his momentary joy at success. His smile lights up all around.
