Fools Game

Ignorance that plays a fool
Leaves pity in it wake
Fearing what became of you
The role was free to take.

Finding truth within your game
I sought out all your gold
Seeking for your promised lies
Your hate had clearly told

Praying that Id stay alive
This game had wicked turns
listening for a reason why
The answer wasn't heard.

Time elapsed before my eyes
No change was clear to show
Deepened with a sense to strive
Depression told me no

The one who cared to fool around
Had made a different game
Leading to a different fight
That showed a different play.

In time you'll know that fool was me
I learned to overcome
Learning to be a better me
and knowing games are dumb.

I find it easier to express what I want to say when there is a rhythm to it! Thank you I appreciate it!
