STORY OF DEFEAT :by Abdulhamid sekere

 Many souls gone.
Silence after all.
Tramples of the horses.
Fading of the voices.

Fought with vigour.
Every single hulk.
With complete bravery.
 Conquered all fears.
During the brawl.

Swords swinging in action.
Blades hungry for blood.
Smiles concealed.
After a defeat.
On the battlefield.

Nigh what are we.
To gain Victory.
Faced the enemies.
With the last drops of blood.
But there was a massacre.
And they won the War.

A battle we have lost.
But the War is still on.
For a flee in the battle.
Does not measure our mettle.

Nimbly intoned by the sage.
Those who fight and run away.
Would live to fight another day.

We believe that storytelling answers a major call of humans to share that which is good and enduring. Good stories connect and inspire us and have the power to change the world. What better way to promote the good of man than to create a platform to express the beauty and simplicity of storytelling as an art form! It is our belief that individuals, brands, corporate organizations and the world at large can benefit greatly from this vision, and we are dedicated to continuously delivering value to our visitors, readers, writers, advertisers, our strategic partners and other key stakeholders.
