Defeat, it hurts.
Not in a physical way, but rather in a gut-wrenching way.
Mentally down with nothing left to give,
Falling down the ladder of success.
Giving up seems like the best option,
At least, this way, there will be no more losing.
Nowhere to turn, nowhere to hide,
What will I do next?
The pain lingers as time passes,
The day remains dark.
But to get over the wall of failure,
I must break to build.
Rid the mind and soul of all things lost,
Except for the lessons each taught.
The pain is temporary,
Through perseverance the hurting stops.
Each defeat, each lesson,
Leads to a stronger foundation.
Those that get through the rough,
Make it to the top of the ladder.
Failure after failure leads to success,
Which is where I will be.
Focus on the positives,
