Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

In Defeat

The end of every game,
Signals the start of new play:

Once the parapets of the castle are breached-
Defeat is known to some in a strange land
And as the final call made at dawn reveals,

Every death leads to a new phase of life,
In memory or in pain, in defiance or in shame
Sombre in moods of realism and inspired at heart-

Grieving with madness through the art of hate,
Insidious energy seeping through to contaminate;
Learn to be well instead of a mighty foe or friend.

J. Bibi
