Defeat - Poem by Debra Ann Northern

When I see that I may be discouraged
That feeling we all get that's so familiar
I think back on all the misfortunes
That I have conquered
Day by Day
Eliminating all negativity in my life
Fighting to keep my vitality
Emotion overwhelms me sometimes
Only to revive my perception
That failure will not exhilarate in my future...
