There Is Always A Next Time - Poem by Francis Duggan

That you feel so disappointed one must wonder why
Since you may not have won but your best you did try
And to lose with honor is never a sin
In a Human World where many must lose for a few for to win

It is a fact of life with us that does remain
That many must lose for a few for to gain
Why us humans with each other are so competitive ask one other than me
Suppose this is how we are and we always will be

Today in every village and city and town
Many young people daydream of wealth and renown
But daydreams as we know do seldom come true
And disappointment when you feel success is your due

You feel you were not a winner when you were put to the test
But you cannot do better than your very best
There is always a next time as some like to say
