In sports as in life, its all about winning, is far from losing,
In sports as in life, we take the field, backed by the fans ( life- family & friends) with pride in the jersey (life-family honor) and for self glory alike,
In sports as in life the very thought of a loss is hard to fathom.
But, in sports as in life, a true test is when losing
Buckling up, gentlemanly and graceful in a loss
It seems to account for nothing at first,
Only winners seem to count, statistics an account,
Self glory intact, coveted trophy in their hands,
Fans swarming up to be a part of their success
Hailing them as warriors with no competition alike.
But believe O you! When the dust settles on top,
After the merry has fizzled, you hail the winners yes,
But admiration to the gallant losers pour in aloud,
For those who are graceful even when losing-
It takes one a long way, distinguishing the rest and the very best.
To the uninterested it is just another game of sports or life,
But in veracity, in sports as in life is a test of morals and character alike.
