Tell Me Who You Are?

Defeat Tell Me Who You Are HBR Patel

Life is lived cautiously to avoid you, O Defeat,

Working day & night with rigour just to avoid you, O Defeat.

We were taught many techniques just to avoid you, O Defeat,

We thought we will be perfect by acting just to avoid you, O Defeat.

How can we make it to the top by just avoiding you, O Defeat?

The answer was always there surrounding me and you, O Defeat.

Some never escape the Mediocrity by accepting defeat from you, O Defeat,

But some people made it to the top by defeating You, O Defeat.

Only If I could know your real face behind the disguise, O Defeat,

You met me many times to teach me many things, O Defeat.

But I avoided you for the fear of being called failure, O Defeat,

Successful made to the top by accepting what you taught them, O Defeat.

Accepting the mistakes and improving on them will help us defeat you, O Defeat,

Your encounter always had a lesson to teach us to defeat you, O Defeat.

If only the world accepted you and try to improve themselves, O Defeat,

HBR says no one will fear you ’cause you are the success disguised as defeat, O Defeat.
