Victory, Not A Defeat

Victory, Not A Defeat



So what if you’ve been torn?

So what if you’ve been scorned?


I tear just like you and feel the things you do,

And I’ve been beaten and tarnished just like you,


As has the rest of this world.


So get up, get over yourself and stop acting inferior.

We all have flawed interiors and gnarled exteriors.


Yours is no better or worse, we all feel pain - we all know “hurt.”


So use those feet, cut back on the grief.

Make this existence a victory, not a defeat.
