I really like this one, I feel as though I'm peeking into your thoughts, witnessing the struggle you are engaging in. "Driven to the very brink of success only to fail"--that line packs a powerful punch. I can see a person working their whole life to reach their goal, just to have it taken from them. It makes it easy to understand the turmoil you have inside.
Think of your midlife crisis as a rest stop on an interstate: you get to reflect on how far you've come and look forward to the journey that still lies ahead.
Work like you don't need the money, love like it's never going to hurt, dance like nobody's watching.
