They say failure is a stepping stone,

and I am getting in tune with alone,

the song of my dream howling at the world,

and I refuse to sing it aloud,

Changes crept  into my comfort,

and I hid behind a fading silhouette,

Maddening decisions, as I fall in love with grey,

and silence in my mind painting a millions landscapes,

Violins shriek in an innocent calm,

and I draw the notes from dancing skies so grey,

Alone I wonder despite loving forever,

and I ponder why did it soar high to fall harder,

To stand up and reach for the stars so high,

and I remember failure is a stepping stone

To be free ,to be in love with a life of colours and grey!
