LIFE IS NOT YOUR ADVERSARY FAILURE IS | POEATREEMAN on Xanga

Opponents


If Success and Failure
Are Opponents

Then Defeat
is the Referee

When  Neither
one is Successful

Then Defeat
takes this Round.

I could not Fail,
I could not Lose

Oh! the cries
I’ve Heard
When Ego Boasted.

I could have Won,
Arrogance Hailed.

I am Fighting air.

Win, Lose, or Draw,
It is  not
the smartest Bet. 

When Defeat
Is Staring
you in the face.

Mirroring
your every move.

He will surely
take you down.

Round one is not over.

Punches are thrown.
From all Directions.

Bob and weave,
Will let you stay in.

Keep on Fighting,
To the end.

Will!

Will last as long as you.

Life is not
the one to fight.

All the wrongs
that are not right.

Will!

Will help you
in your plight.

Wrong is your
Greatest Opponent.

You must fight.

Love will soften
when it can
                   
Those bruises
will show
Now and then.

God can mend
What man has done.

Round two

Life goes on.
It is hard to fight.
All lifelong.
What can I say?   
Try to Win
There are still rounds
to be Won.

Now count. 
To the ends,
You will know
your wear.

You’ve faced it all, 
And shown the  best.

What more is left
Then to see
it all through?

You stood your ground
In spite of failures.

Now
you can call yourself

A Champ.

God is in your corner
He will keep you
in the round.

Remember!

You always
have a prayer.

Say it now.
For it may be
your last round....

A POET’S NOTE

Success and I
Are very old friends
It is failure
I do not want to see again...
Defeat,
Keeps me in the rounds
I have to fight both.
To win this round.
Success and Failure
Are my lifelong mates
I have to deal with them
Round by Round
It is never over
As long as I’m around....

“When the Trumpets Blow”
WHEN THE TRUMPETS BLOW****
Revisit once again
You will better understand.
Defeat is not your friend.
It is the Opponent
That will fight you
To the end..
