Won or Lost

//Won or Lost

Won or Lost

I set a deadline 

For myself.

I didn’t meet it.

So I cheated

And made it look

As though I had.

No one else knew

Of my act 

Nor of my target.

So essentially

I set the goal,

I failed,

I cheated,

So I won.

Did I win or lose?

    Nice one, Jeena. Sounds like what is called the "shifting the goalpost".
