Between the cup and the lip
There are many missing stories between the cup and the lip,
They go untold and unheard between the gap.
Losing a medal by fraction of scores,
Missing a rank by fraction of marks,
Becoming a runner-up just by one unsatisfactory answer,
Knocked out at the last minute because you are not heavier.
The stories go endless and the loser become helpless,
Whom to blame, one's own fate or other's judgements?
The invisible hands which controls between the gap,
Does it to create a scope or a trap?
Most of us fall prey and tend to lose hope,
Can we work out solutions to bridge the gap?
