The only thing harder than trying,
So I’ll skim through past musings.
Looking for what?
Some type of sure-fire win strategy,
Or at least a shortcut.
But where is the fun in that?
Some people are in it for the challenge.
I, myself, don’t like dragging limp legs over thorn-embedded obstacles.
That is far from optimal.
Give me the easy route,
Covered in motivational phrases;
Drowning in good times.
I really want to win,
But I know how losing would feel.
So I’ll come back to this ideal.
It is for another time and place,
Maybe for a different soul with a different face.
