Pity the timid soul
who hides in a hole.
He will never see
VICTORY.
True, he may never taste defeat.
If you don't compete
you can't be beat.
Still, isn't it better to strive for a worthy cause
and fail,
than to spend your life
sorting your mail?

Alan Cook, Mystery and walking writer

I'm afraid that most of my competition has left me behind, but I do my best to compete! I truly enjoy our poems.
