Here’s to the losers

Hi everyone,


Here’s to those
Who lost but tried,
Who felt the lows,
The wounded pride.

Here’s to those
Who tried but lost,
Who took the blows,
Paid the cost.

Cowardice knows
It’s safe inside.
Here’s to those
Who at least tried.

  1. Here’s to Those

    Here’s to those
    Who tried to stay,
    when courses ran
    the other way.

    And here’s to those
    who stayed to try,
    whose courage kept them
    from the fly.

    Your bravery
    will not be lost,
    though you have paid
    the highest cost.

    But greater still
    nests memory
    where comfort
    and companions be.
