WHICH FEELS BETTER, TO WIN OR LOSE? BY JONNIE TAYLOR
Which feels better, to win or to lose?
To give your all, no matter the result
Through thick and thin not needing an excuse
To not try at all would be the only insult
But what if the win was given?
What if the win was just handed to you?
What if you didn’t put in a lick of work
For something you barely wanted to do
Is this victory even worth a smirk?
What if you lose when your all isn’t enough?
What if you lose given your best try?
There’s nothing more you could have done
When the only questions you have is a bunch of whys
There’s much to learn for what you have not won
What if you lose and you don’t care
What if you lose and you don’t own it
When you look for anything to blame
And when you become the hypocrite
The only feelings you have is shame
So which one feels better, to win or to lose?
What if that’s not the right question?
What if winning or losing doesn't matter?
What if it’s your perception is all that matters?
Because in the end what more could you do
When you’ve learned and done all you could do
