“First Defeat”


In my life
I was never pleaded
But that was the first time
When I got defeated
People threw
stones on me
so from that place
I started to flee
The first defeat
that I faced
Learnt me
how to be supressed?
The habit of victory
was left more behind
when in pride of winning
I was blind
I got insulted
at very step
Neither got rest
nor even a nap
but everytime
the lesson I learnt
was the blame
for my heart to be burnt
They refreshed
my internal wounds deep
that pain too
on my first defeat…
