Trial & Error

According to the few

Past experiences he recalled 

There are those which always

Would leave him appalled 

Having seen the possibility 

Of what comes to fruition 

With the sole imperative 

Found in driving ambition 

The tools at his disposal 

Present new opportunities 

Which only seemed obvious 

After much deeper scrutiny 

Each step in the process 

Having a rare familiarity 

Like a taunting memory

Returning with more clarity

This time would be different 

Since a way had been made

All the trial and error past

Leaving him quiet unafraid 

But what caused the outrage

Was allowing a broken soul

To taint his previous efforts 

And distract from goals
