The purpose of life is to search eternally for the purpose of life


The last time you lost

You conceded

And through that you believed

That the pinnacle was destined to be conquered

And I knew

One misstep

And it would be my turn

Again

To regain my lost glory

 

We understood without kindness

In smirks of gentle vengeance

In glares of trusting pride

To approve

And once more I saw

Your expectations, my holy grail in aureole

Ascending yet higher

As I groppled at the bottom

Of the real challenge

 

You.

You can't lose to anyone else.

Promise.


The author's comments:

A poem for my rivals.

A real rival is someone whom you trust to do his/her best and to work hard to improve him/herself through honest means. A real rival is someone you would hate to lose to. Yet, internally, you admit that you are proud of him/her as well as yourself.
