  1. You fall sometimes, you falter at others
    your knees may scuff or your hair fall out of place
    but no matter what, you must pull yourself to your feet
    and keep on the journey, whatever your pace.

  2. Sometimes i falter when I try to do something good for someone. I usually have good intentions so sometimes i misconstrue my good intentions.

  3. Ein Falter ist ein Schmetterling. Er wird aber nicht Schmetterling genannt. Denn er ist kein anmutiges, hübsches, ansehliches Tierchen, sondern ein kräftiges, kleines Fluginsekt.

  4. I am faltering
    In my smiles
    Tied up with the strings
    Of loneliness
    And of standards
    It is wavering
    I know you see it
    With the eyes
    Of a thousand spirits
    My spirit
    It can be free
    Can it not

  5. And he tripped over the loose shoelace; she caught the desperation in his eyes and paused.

  6. I will not falter.
    I will not give in.
    Failure this time, is not an option.
    I will not falter.
    My father left us behind.
    My mother was left for dead.
    But I will not falter.
    I will push through the crowd.
    Through the waterfall of humanity.
    I will not falter.
    I will live on.

  7. to falter is to make mistakes, something every human does and something that shouldn’t be looked down upon. In school having straight A’s is an achievement, but to have an imperfect grades means you are faltering, picking yourself back up, and trying again, something much more important than knowing everything in advance.

  8. fail. break down. when you falter, you alter. and then you get back up. the opposite of falter is strength. be strong, don’t falter.

  10. You begin to falter in your orations, your ankles shaking beneath your bold, black boots. The crowds are waiting, fists still raised. They’re waiting to chant your name. But to do that, they must hear of the Great Truth. And what is the Great Truth? That you control the seas like Poseidon with his trident. And your New Order shall form an empire that will not sink like Atlantis. But you are realizing, with the microphone squeaking from your hesitant breaths, that the tide is already pulling you and your regime in.

  11. i went over to the bridge and had a question on the tip of my tongue. i couldn’t remember the memory that triggered it. It felt as though i woke up with it already in my mind and it found the right moment to come out. i opened my mouth and closed my eyes. the sun bathed my skin in radiance, but nothing came out. i exhaled and sighed

  12. She started walking up the stairs, one foot in front of the other. At the tenth step she faltered, she glanced behind her, but of course no one was there. She tried to make herself move forward, to reach her destination. But ever since that day she hadn’t been able to do it, she would get this far and every time she would falter. Never able to go up that last step.

  13. I fell behind. I wasn’t sure how to proceed. I faltered in my response to him, as I did not feel I could speak the truth. I falter when I try to implement new programs. The unfamiliarity of it all comes crashing down. I get a hiccup in my giddy-up.

    By Cara Herkamp URL on 10.16.2014

  14. her father never faltered to answer her questions until now. what did he know about her mother and where she had been. who could she even trust? her mother was after her powers, her newest friend betrayed her and now her father might know the key to everything.

  15. Faltering fire within me
    When will you cease no more?
    When will my spirit fight again?
    Faltering fire within me
    I beg, return once more!

  16. I cannot falter.

    By Jason on 10.16.2014

  17. Falter. That pretty much describes the state of my life for the past few years. Commitment to everything was faltering. Bills were not being paid. Deadlines were missed. Relationships failed.

  18. Falter. That pretty much describes the state of my life for the past few years. Commitment to everything was faltering. Bills were not being paid. Deadlines were missed. Relationships failed. Just one missed responsibility after another. How have I become less responsible as I’ve aged?

    By Charla on 10.16.2014

  19. sometimes I falter… but don’t we all?
    I try not to dread on it too much
    for I know I’m only human
    and humans err
    humans falter
    humans are humans

  20. If I should stumble, will you catch my fall? Or will I land in the gutter with nowhere to go? Let me not falter at my duties, but rather be victorious in the game of life.

    By carol epstein on 10.16.2014

  21. Eating another piece of pie. Why would I bother even trying to stay on this god damned diet. I’m doomed to falter in any attempt at stopping this emotional reactionary eating. I need to die.

    By Karen on 10.16.2014

  22. As I walk up to the stage I could feel my steps faltering, it made me think of all the famous people in history I wonder how many times did they feel like all they were doing was just a bunch of faltering ideas upon faltering ideas.

    By Hope Strubs on 10.16.2014

  23. They doubted her and perhaps they were right to but I…I could not. I knew her too well, knew that she would die before she’d falter, before she’d fail. It wasn’t in her to give any less than all of herself to the cause, our cause, HER cause.

  24. It’s a trip, a step, another stumble… he hits the ground and it shakes with fright. His tongue is lolling, swelling too big for his mouth, and what should have been “I’m sorry” comes out “It was only a matter of time.”

    By darseyrsm URL on 10.16.2014

  25. It was when she looked into his eyes and began to speak that her words began to falter, for she knew her emotions could not express the love she felt.

    By marylou wynegar URL on 10.16.2014

  26. Standing at the gate, I faltered. Beyond was a life of untold dreams, lovers, and aspirations, but where I was existed a life of complacency, devotion, and security. Do I make the leap to whomever awaits me on the other side, or do I fall graciously into the arms of people I know accept me?

    By Kumquat on 10.16.2014

  27. With these steps, I do. We light fires without them ever catching flame upon us. You sit beside me, glowing, and my embers ash into nothing but cold coals. I know this is true, I know it must be. But still, I stumble, I falter, I make blind motions without knowing, that they always seem to lead me to a seat or place beside you.

    By MorganLovell URL on 10.16.2014

  28. I really think faltering in any case could be seen as a learning experience. You learn from your mistakes so you don’t falter in the future.

  29. Intros into this line of thinking often causes one to #falter and question what they believe. But that is exactly what proves his guilt. Unfortunately the council will come to clarity too late. #OneWord @oznolem

  30. I can’t falter on this journey. I’ve come way too far to drop the ball – again. This is the ultimate test of my resolve and of my commitment to getting things done. I will do everything in my power to make it happen – I will make it happen. And when I do, then there’s only way to go from there – UP. Higher and higher. I can do this.

  31. I felt my step falter. I had been moving evenly – left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot, left, right, left, left. I glanced back at my followers, at my friends, and their eyes went a little bit questioning, as if they hadn’t noticed a thing, and they were wondering why I looked at them so alarmingly. But was that it? Was it really?

    I shrugged, turned back, and kept walking.

    I was their leader. I couldn’t be weak. No matter what.

  32. There’s a refrain. I hear it all the time. It’s never the same way twice.

    But I don’t falter.

    No, not this time.

    Although the next? Who’s to say as it’s sometimes hard to keep it in the lines.

  33. Her brain falters
    her words stutter

    and everything falls apart

    By Lily on 10.16.2014

  34. She was walking along the busy streets. Pushing past the faces, blank, staring into smartphones, headphones in, talking to the air, hailing cabs, shouting at fellow pedestrians or listening to their music.

    By Emily on 10.16.2014

  35. He had made a mistake. He found himself falling, falling, into the deep dark blackness of the pit. His scream was ripped form his throat and all the thoughts were torn from his mind. Nothing. There was nothing except blackness. This small falter would cost him his life.

    By Lala on 10.16.2014

  36. am i supposed to draw something? this is annoying and stupid and after this im getting off this site. I am bored.

  37. two steps down the stairs and then five more, a stretching pavement. the wind was cold and we made snowmen out of dried dirt, painting each other’s faces in freeing winter mud. we knew our steps wouldn’t falter as we made it to the stream. we dipped our hands in the water and fell asleep on the rocks. in the morning it was warm.

  38. Stumbling, bumbling stutter about
    stagger through the dusty grout
    set upon those dog worn pages
    scattered across my rusty prose
    cast about what seems clear
    failure near this distant repair

    By Protean on 10.16.2014

  39. “I’m just saying that you should –”

    His thoughts skipped a spoke and reduced to a jangle of clockwork, winding down. ‘You… wait. What?”

    “I slept with them.”


    “Well. Yeah.”

  40. Megumi broke under the weight of her burden. Just for a moment, she was brought to a knee. She breathed, demanding her body be equal to her spirit and to the task, and in a moment, she was walking forward again.
