Honest Haiku: Fifteen

It’s hard to keep positive when you feel like you’re ‘failing’ and supposed successes surround you at every swipe.

But all is not what it seems. Many of us don’t even share the bad news and the hindrances, but only the good stuff: the stuff you want to shout from the rooftops.

Behind every piece of positive news are the problems, trials, lessons, and setbacks that have littered the path of the journey that preceded it.

You just don’t often see them. We don’t talk about them much. But they’re there.

They’re here.

And so, may I introduce my next Honest Haiku.



Honest Haiku: Fifteen

For every success
upon my feed, a thousand
failures lie beneath.
