Defeat

By Evelyn Fjeldsted

Defeat is not defeat unless
Our own decisions make it so –
For us, defeat can make no terms,
If we persistently say no.

There is no lasting, real defeat,
When faith illumines destiny –
Defeat will prove at length to be
A stepping stone to victory.

(1949)

  2. This is fantastic. I think I may print it out and keep it for motivation.
