The Loser


Again the day had come
When I had concentrated on those coins
That was all for mine but lost
And the cyclone rolled those dust with gust

Earn after born at my mother’s shack
Penny to penny kept into my empty soul
Sounding low when filled with sorrow,
Blew all those through this hollow

The day had gone forever
And I am the Loser, lost more than I loss
Collect other coins that less than I lost
And the Lord will be paid the ultimate cost

    Very sad write. One is not a looser till one doesn't feel within. As long as will power is there, he can never be a looser..... But if lost from inner heart, even if he may be successful, he will remain as looser....
    A looser can be winner
    and a winner one can be a looser too. Beautiful write. Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
