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.
