120. Winning hearts

I lose every battle I fight,
Even if I fight hard -
My mind,body and soul in synch,
My honed skills on full display,
My confidence soaring high.

Effort is not a factor in outcome,
To lose is my destiny,
They say, winning is an art,
An art isn't easy to acquire.

I can be at peace with losing
If someone can teach me
The art of winning without fight-
The art of winning hearts.

Sad but meaningfully written Onkarji!! The art of winning hearts is too complicated to understand and master!!
