The reason I am here

a poem by Rumani Dey

I did not know
Whether I did know
What they call
And why they call
The triumph as birth

When I turn
My eyes around
I see the winners here
Ignorant of the fact that
They are the champions

So they are alive
And they survived last night
They won all past nights
Ungrateful and unhappy
Cause they compare

My life to theirs
How could my life be
Similar to yours
I am a winner
And so are you

Winners are alone
Be proud of what you are
Rich or poor
You won today
You are the winner…
