You’re not going to win every battle you fight
Some will say that you’re wrong even when you are right.
Any man can take action, but results you can’t choose
There are times when no matter what, you’re bound to lose.
Not all heroes are winners, not all villains are weak.
Not all judges will trust in the truth that you speak
Not all bullies’ comeuppance comes up as we’d hope
Sometimes innocent parties will hang from a rope
Nonetheless, we pray. There must be a plan.
Truth and justice for all, God protects moral man.
But on days God’s not watching or seems not to care.
Best to pick battles carefully. Think twice. Beware.
Yet never stop fighting when you know you’re not wrong
Losing, not winning, teaches us to be strong.
Life is not about how hard you attack
It’s defined by our will to lose but come back
Regroup, rethink, still hold your head high
You’re not a loser for losing if you continue to try
So cast off your sadness, and dust off your shame
You might not have won, but at least you played the game
And next time around should more losses come
You’ll know that you tried, so you already won.
