When a Fish Wants to Fly

First, consider these quotes about self- knowledge,

"If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!"-St. Catherine of Sienna

"The nation doesn’t simply need what we have. It needs what we are." -St. Teresia Benedicta (Edith Stein)

Crushed by failure,

 an ego shattering,

 hope defying


 Judged on the surface, each endeavour appears to be executed

 by an incompetent ne’er-do-well,

 trying yet again and floundering.

 The result is a fiasco, debacle, catastrophe, disaster, blunder,

 a plain old botch up.

 Call it a washout, dead duck or a lead balloon.

 By any other name, it is still 

 a flop.

 Yet, upon further reflection,

 this apparent lack of success,

is not a result of a lack of talent,

 but like

 a fish wanting to fly 

 in the air.

He will  look like a genius


he discovers a unique way 

of swimming

in water.
