Poem: Feeling Defeat

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Feeling Defeat" is a poem that shows what it's like to be at one's breaking point.

A person can be strong, able to handle anything when suddenly this feeling overcomes him.

It seems like there is no way out of this cycle. Like it's waiting for the white towel to be tossed.

It leaves one speechless with overflowing tears.

"Feeling Defeat"

She's at her breaking point,
tears overflowing
as she tries to be strong,
but weakness overpowers.

There are moments she can handle anything,
nothing can stand in her way,
but then a feeling overcomes her,
leaving her speechless,
like her heart is breaking
all over again.

There is no way out,
this cycle keeps repeating,
leaving her lost and alone,
waiting to toss in the towel.


Your breaking point is a time of self discovery.
