“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” -Winston Churchill


You made a snap

Our dreams crumbled down.


No longer could I wear a frosted face,

You knew it hurt

Put me out of place.


No buttons of pride,

The only man you could catch

I should never of pulled open…


That fateful oven latch.
