Reconsidering Strength

Why must we, so often,

Draw lines in the sand

And stick to our guns

Due to honor and pride?

Since when is it weakness

To consider, debate,

And then back away from

Decisions made in haste?

I can’t help but feel

That this kind of strength

Is the worst kind of weakness

We have lurking inside.

Bitter disappointment

And horrible losses

We then label victory?

What a terrible waste!
