Defeat

on

If you have never failed, there is a certain depth of pain you cannot understand,
The pain that comes from having done all, yet faced with the bluntness of nothing;
When defeat comes like a flood and it’s consequences shines brightly,
What you do next is what matters more than the defeat itself.

Surely, it is painful when the proprietors are close allies,
It is more devastating when those who make it happen are those with whom blood is shared;
Still, rise from your ruins and dust your garment,
Begin again and thrust forward…
You really don’t have to win all wars,
Only those appointed to you and your posterity.
