Defeat

Pondering the Olympics this morning and thinking:

 

The goal is always to succeed,

to win as it’s defined,

and yet the guts of life and truth,

comes on the losing side.

The Romans had a slave behind

as they rode basked in triumph,

to whisper stark realities;

how brief is victory’s smile.

There is no doubt that winning,

is something to acclaim,

but also to remember,

that losing stands and waits.
