The One Who Loses With Grace

To lose without grace even seems a bigger sin
Than being arrogant and boastful when you do win
If you cannot lose with grace you cannot win with humility
At least anyway that's how it seems to me
The way we behave is for us for to choose
But it takes one of courage and humility with grace for to lose
The one who does lose with a smile on his face
And shake the hand of the winner and him or her embrace
Is one who by good example does lead the way
And who will win with honor and grace and humility one day
The praises of the winner the majority may sing
Which after all does seem a natural thing
But the arrogant winner with a smirk on his or her face
Is far less of a person than the one who loses with grace.
