Failure is ultimately success

I am that miracle of failure
It is here I've endured every travesty
It (failure) has become my
deep well of wisdom
to draw upon success.

Love this line and totally agree. Here is one of my favorite quotes.

going for it and getting there over and over again.” Andreas Simic

I appreciate the way it talks about a negative and spins it into a positive. Its short and yet expressive. Very nice indeed.

I like the positive message of failures leading to successes. However, I do feel that the word "failure" in parentheses kind of interrupts the flow. Perhaps either choose "it has become..." or "failure has become..." instead of saying both.

I believe in brevity, but this poem didn't really need to be so short. This poem was like a tease. I would like a little more.
