I Won When I Lost by Ron Porter

Triumphant,? ?now i stand.? ?I
survived the worst self-devised
methods to bring me destruction?;
survived half a lifetime of attacks
upon myself,? ?by me,? ?as instuction.
Lessons on all the ways i invent,
unknowing,? ?to manufacture misery.
All those old ways I've discarded
to be open-minded and kind hearted?;
Over self,? ?I now claim the victory?!
