Can't Win For Losing
I play it straight,I play it to the fullest,I play it until I fixed all the problems and yet i lose in the end.I didn't lose love I lost myself in a world that can't keep to it self.Isn't life it self a game meant to played until you die? So why have I run out of plans why am I winning but losing at the same time? Maybe there a rule I haven't thought of,for there is time I can't understand my winning when I'm losing.It may be my pride it may be this lack of heading down and showing my problem like an open book.Tell me oh planner of the time and of the end and of the now what must this soul do to make a shining star in your world?I am no honest with my self my wins are straight my pride is a thing to be proud of and yet why am I losing my self to this endless cycle of renewal and bent stress? There is yet a sharp pain that strides through out my body and yet I take this pain as the karma of my own selfishness,is it right or is it wrong? is it some thing I can fix with just a snap of my fingers or with hard work and love of a winning loser? I play it straight,I play it to the fullest I play until I fixed all the problems but in the in I win by losing but what I am losing is my self.
