Winning And Losing - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

There is no fun in losing
If sometimes you are not winning,
There is no fun in winning
If sometimes you are not losing.

So, isn't there a harmonious relationship
Between winning and losing?
My dear friend, why then lose heart
When such arch-rivals too share such kinship?

    All opposites are inter-complementary like the two sides of the same coin. The last two lines are very thought-provoking. (10) (Report) Reply

    '' There is no fun in losing
    If sometimes you are not winning,
    There is no fun in winning
    If sometimes you are not losing. ''

    The truth and wisdom of this first stanza is eloquently presented. It could stand as the best quote by you, on your main page.

    Nicely articulated thoughts and a philosophy of life which relies so much on the inter-relationship of winning and losing. Thanks. (Report) Reply
