Victory over Defeat

Fear not if you have lost,

‘Tis life that matters, not the battles fought.

Not your weakness, but the attitude,

Not your merriment, but the solitude.

Your fall is all human,

If you were godly, you wouldn’t have fallen.

So failure is not a bad omen.

It is just one of life’s lesson.

If you’re human, you’re weak.

Never to reach the peak

Is your earnest endeavour;

And you get life as a favour.

Then you sit back and think-

Isn’t it safe after you went to the brink-

To the brink of disaster.

And then you know you are master

At the toughest art,

The art of life and heart.

And when you’re again on your feet

You know you’ve had victory over defeat.

Hi Sheryl,
The line you've quoted is incomplete. The line goes, never to reach the peak,Is your earnest endeavor.It means, in my point of view, that no matter how much you try to reach the peak, your effort is always incomplete or not at its fullest.
Hope I cleared your doubt somewhat. Thanks.

We are human not angels we will fall
Get up don't stop and attend your call
This world is full of people good and cheats
Don't worry we have victory over defeat
I love this poem Hanita

Good one! Keep it up!!

“Difficulty in life does not come to destroy us,
But to help us realise our hidden potential and power
Let the difficulties know that we too are difficult”.
By: Former President of India, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

True learning and growth comes from figuring out what not to do,
Rather than only knowing what to do.
