trapped in games

some battles that we win
lose us everything that we are
and they become forever a barrier
to who we might have been
had we not let emotion drive
our thoughts, words and deeds

in this i know
there is no hope for the human race

for always it will come down to

winning at all costs

and then

destroying everything of value
to prove to ourselves we were right
and to prove to our bed-mates
that we are worthy

but all it proves
is that we are lowly

and once there
we abdicate responsibility
for all our foul deeds

to "love"
