It’s come down to this:

I am a defeated man

beaten down by fate


That’s something many

viewed as destiny

while others still

foresee eventual glory


The pen is still

entrenched in hand;

perhaps that is

a victory in itself


but I no longer

possess the sharp edge

or the concise wit


My vision is numbed

and vomiting out

chunks of ideas

utterly unusable


I guess we all

end up falling one day

It’s a bummer

it came so soon for me

I Deny Failure And Defeat
