Louis Gibbs


"They showed such promise,

Came so close ...


On the very brink of making it

To the next level.


So much for that experiment!

Too bad.


Let's see now ...

What to create next?"

          Ah, a poet who is discriminating as to what she publishes. Congratulations, and thanks for your input, Christina!

          Louis, the way I see this poem, the who, what and why is not relevant. The poem tells me not to give up, to keep on going, to see failure as an opportunity, to learn from past mistakes.
          Very well written, like it a lot!
