When at a lost whether total or not,
it is always best to surrender.
Beaten requires submission,
surrender means losing graciously

imposes on another.

Maintaining an emotional balance,
contorts my being.

a surrender and finding my center.
Answering a life’s call,
sustains a presence.
So, losing my way or purpose necessitates

Losing is a lesson learned
and the loser becomes the foil.
So, submit without demanding
and embrace the unknown.
