All the way
Sits placid on my face.

I know I have lost
But Look I am content.
Better than who by not trying
At all

Even did lost in intent.

The challenge is always there in front of you and it is all your choice to decide whether you want to make the sacrifice and move on or remain motionless! 10+++ A well crafted and poignant write! Enjoyed it and you must keep it up! Thanks for sharing! Regards from New York City

When you run more and more in those times to come yet, your mind will respond in a different way and you are too young to feel the impact of a real defeat. I like your writing and feel liking telling you about the need for stepping out of yourself soon to reap the harvest of writing over the P.H. All the best ahead Kalpak Kaplash
