What is defeat, but another challenge,
Encountered along the way, which may
Inherently seek to derail and project lingering
Emotions of dejection and hopelessness.
Why give it the opportunity, to execute
Its untoward agenda and pervade the
Remaining course with that abject resignation
When assuredly, it can be limited in essence.
Nay, squarely determine to reverse the tide
By employing inward resilience and valor
In favor of transcending the circumstances, and
Certainly defeating that which seeks to defeat.
Don’t be discouraged!
