I fell down, but I stood up
I was teased, but I was not shrunk
I was bullied, but I was built up
Words that were meant to break me, repaired me
Failure made the best out of me.

They may have wondered
Where do I get the courage?
The courage to stand up firm
Against any challenge that comes my way
Turn that challenge into my motivation
To change things and do better.

Little did they know that those
Who turn their backs against mine
Motivate me better than friends do.
They made me the best
And for that I am forever grateful.

My wounds were opened, flesh was scarred
I might have failed
But that’s where I have found courage
Because failure makes me the best.
