GRACEFUL DEFEAT

There is grace
In giving in
And walking away

Poise

In discerning your strengths
Knowing to push wheels
And not walls

There is a wise patience

In letting go
To await
Another turn

Not cowardice
Nor pessimism

Grace

Choosing battles well
And retreating
From others

Not avoidance
Nor self defeat

Acceptance

There is grace
In giving in
And walking away
