If At First You Don’t Succeed

If at first you don’t succeed
Don’t let it cause you distress
And if you still fail to succeed
You must redefine success

About the Poem

It's something adults do all the time, redefining success so that they don't look as though they've failed. If only they could apply the same thinking to school exams. Or perhaps they have!
