Winners And Losers: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart

"Damn that man sounds like a strangled cat"
Pavarotti exclaimed and he was mad about that
as Kurt Cobain had nothing to lose
and heckled everyone with those same old blues!

---

The doors of history were left ajar.
Purity of thought didn't get far
and a seed of doubt was planted instead
when cynicism reared its ugly head!

---

They were blessed instinctively by the grace of God
and given the power of a ceremonial nod
to exploit the riches of this natural resource.
A woman's intuition is such an amazing force!

---

His insatiable appetite in record scores
had opened many blood soaked doors
and for countless decades he was fed
from the daily menu of the dead!

---

He checked in last night with a story to tell.
No one was home to share his private hell
of a mystery as deep as a bottomless well
which will rest in peace at the Dry River Motel!

I was thinking about

success...In my opinion, you are a loser when you betray your heart.There is no success when you are not faithful to yourself.
Besides what one may consider a loser, for someone else this very person may be a winner.How prepared are we to measure success or even to call somebody a loser? This is very subjective.My limited point of view is not your truth.Judgement most of times is based on feelings and not on our fantastic mind.I'd rather be a loser if I have to go against my beliefs and convictions to get something.I'd rather be a loser if I have to go against my conscience.Life is much more than what people may consider me or not.Losers are those who forget their own individualities Mr Colin Crocodile?
