Gloating at Life

Whenever I emmerge from pits of strife
I wallow in the glory of my win
And tend to gloat victoriously at Life
To think that I subdued the likes of him

It seems while Im still basking in the glow
He moves the painful pole up one more notch
Life then decides to deal another blow
And then sits back triumphantly to watch

I vow to wage more vigorous a war
Determined to outdo my callous foe
Buoyed up by battle scars Id earned before
I muster all the strength God may bestow

Some times I have to grant Life victory
He flouts in gloating smirks right back at me

Hi LIZ...missed you  

this is so different from how you usually write, but I like the power of it and the touch of irony.
yes, some times we have to let life have its little victory...but it does make us stronger for the next battle.
then we can wipe that smirk of his face...
take care, sweet poet friend.

 A life isn't significant except for its impact on other lives.
