Victory and Defeat

in life so far i have met,
both victory and defeat,
one cannot obtain one & avoid the other,
as one follows the others feet.

i do not fear defeat,
for towards the other it has led,
defeat is in my past,
and the past i do not dread.

victory without work,
that i do not expect,
victory is in my future,
the future how can i reject?

one might think that both are different,
those thoughts i believe are wrong,
for one is dependent on the other,
as like good wordings make a song.

i do not await victory,
for it shall come when it is time,
it shall come to me when i deserve it,
till then i shall be fine.

both victory and defeat,
one shall encounter in a lifetime,
if one denies meeting defeat,
it is evident that fear is there in mind.

fearing defeat is cowardice,
awaiting victory without work is foolish,
both show your mindset.
victory and defeat are keys,
keys to your mind,
keys to your deepest emotions.
the keys are always within you,
when you choose to take them,
is upto you & you alone.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
