High on Waves

What is the happiness I seek?
Not to win the race
but to understand
the face of failure
for through it
I have learned to run
and not to fear the doubts of my mind.
It is they that have shown me
where the road lies narrow
and hardest to pass.
Through the forces of the world around me
even when I feel tired and oppressed
I shall find the way to increase
my own strength
and stand in awe of the pattern
of the universe.
