☕ small wins

no flag unfurled,

empty stadiums,

found a wreath, no one’s watching.

no, it isn’t gilded roses,

it’s a paper-cut cure,

tiny, infinitesimal,

no one will ever know

not a laurel in a battle,

but an inch in the war

but the flag unfurling

doesn’t need to mean more,


It’s about the small wins

Didn’t leak a secret

Stayed away from coffee

Went to a party,

Chugged down the medicine

Even when you hated it,

Stayed off your phone today,

Went to a stranger, said ‘Hey!’.

…small wins.



A little extract of a song I wrote a while ago (Fun fact: these are the actual ‘small wins’ of some of my friends!).
