    To prepare for the contest needs skill but to win it, one also needs a bit of luck. The whole idea is very well articulated and nicely put across. Thanks, Ramesh ji.

    For me each and every poem is delightful because it comes directly from heart which can not be ignored. Any contest doesn't matter for poetry.

    The premise of your poem is presented backwards and was therefore not immediately understood. Looking for a metaphor, I could not find one. Therefore I assume the meaning of your poem was straightforward as:
    Though seeming to rely on great skill to enter and win this contest, intelligence and luck are equally as important. If there is some underlying meaning to this declarative statement that would make it worthy of being called a poem, sorry but I did not find it.
