I expected to win

I expected to win;
And to win brilliantly;
But I failed woefully;
You may think I was crushed;
Far from it;
You may think I was discouraged;
I wasn’t;
I don’t believe in being discouraged;
Every failure is a challenge
To be more determined than ever before;
To work harder;
And to do better;
That is what I will do;
I will work harder when I fail;
I will be more determined;
And with that, victory will be mine.
