True success measures
how high you bounce back after
hitting rock bottom.

It was one line from my other poem, Artist's Block: "At my lowest point..." And I was thinking, if you are at the lowest point, then you have nothing left to lose and the only way to go is up!

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

This is just WOW.  I love this. I mean I have written so much about getting back up and hope and life lessons and all that crap but this just makes ALL of it look like nothing and THREE lines. WOW. All human sensibilty put in one Haiku :D I think this Haiku is even better than that other one. Enough said I guess.

It reminds me of Emily Dickson's "Success".

No I didn't plagarize. The idea from this haiku came from a line in my other poem "Artist's Block."

I think I heard this as a quote before and you just scrambled and changed some words. I searched and I saw it's from George Patton. I'm not just so sure...

this is perfect, you have a really great way of putting things so positive and motivational. i love how you manage to describe things and have so much emotion and meaning in such few words. i look forward to reading more of your work, from what i can tell so far you are a amazing poet. great job :)
