Hold your head up high

Photo by Anton Maksimov 5642.su on Unsplash

A victory for the one who tried

and succeeded.

His head is hung

in humility -

He displays a crown.

Invisible to the world

but the victor always donned it.

Victory is in his blood.

His cells became soldiers -

His body went into battle


He blessed every small victory -

As if he ended a great battle.

The world saw him victorious

when he appeared beaten

but alive -

He was holding his opponent's head

high above his head

for everyone to see.

Victory is for the humble -

One never knows when their death is nigh.

The victor is grateful for every struggle, challenge

and defeat.

Hold the head up high

and see the eyes of the hopeful.

Be the head that is held high -

Don't wait for battle to show the world

what strength you have.

Live today -

As everyday is a battle

against yourself.
