This poem is so short and so direct to the point. It's brief but it gets
the message across. That's amazing. How someone can reach such a true image
of what life can be like in such a small amount of words.

I find it amazing to create such a short poem yet full of truth itself.It
speaks so much of life.It is inspiring to those hearts that almost lost
hope because of losing,because in losing that is the beginning of one's
It's wonderful!

I feel the poem is speaking to the reality of winning. Winning is business;
there are no friends in competition. You have to give up or Lose those
bonds. And what of the loser? Chances are he will wonder what he did wrong
and try again
