Defeat

What is defeat?

chess-defeat

Does it stare you in the face?

Does it sneak up on you when you least expect it?

Does it last but a moment?

Does it linger?

I have known defeat.

I have known it as briefly as a passerby

and as long as a best friend.

How do you get rid of this feeling?

With success.

Finding your win.

Reveling in your triumphs.

Defeat isn’t permanent.

Carry on.
