There is Victory after Defeat--By Glenda Frazier--United States

There is Victory after Defeat

I have won some victories after defeats
I have crossed the fiery heat and burned, sweated and wept
I have seen sadness and pain...looked it straight in the eyes!
I have suffered while I've lived and seen people die
Yet through it all I have achieved several goals
As victory was just beyond the dreary road
Through victory I have seen another day
As defeats may come and go, it's for victories I shall wait 

(Previously published in Poems that Bleed)
