Root of all failures

Although I somehow guessed it before
it never so clearly dawned on me
that behind most troubles and failures
every stagnation and depression
there is always the same key reason,
natural, petty and utterly harmful,
a nasty, poor and coward human condition
lurking in our depths
when there is no inspiration
to find meaningful change
all failures are nothing
but plain and simple
failures of imagination.
