You Won or Lost

Victory or defeat are based on our perception

Once you convince
yourself that you lost,
you are the definite loser.
It is true of war as of life.
We lose many battles
but not the war till we
decide that we have.
Every day is a battle from
our first breath to our last.
Some days are less fruitful;
We call them lost days.
Others give us much; we call
them good. What was bad in
our view was a good moment…
