sweet defeat?

does a mortal’s defeat taste sweet?

when we throw our arms up in desperation?

when we sigh so full of anguish and resignation?


when we no longer can pray or wish

and feel the burden of no hope

convinced ourselves

of no possible solution

when we pathetically pity ourselves

and feel the tears


when we feel depleted

rejected and overlooked

and completely at a loss


is it simply our doing?

or is our pleading worth hearing?
