My Losing Battle

Today I lost.

Today exhaustion won over perseverance,

Temper over patience.

Today mistakes were made,

And cries were spent.

Time was wasted—productivity amiss.

Judgement ran awry; my logic and reason flawed.

So as I surrender to this day, beaten and brawled,

I look forward to tomorrow.

Not to undo what is already done,

but to learn from today’s losing battle,

and perhaps emerge victorious again.
