Are we blinded by the competitivness
Shining into our eyes?
In the form, "If we win...
"We'll play again..."
Until the end of time?
Are we blinded though, by something that's so fake
That it would take a monster
From inside ourselves,
To shake?
Maybe we should take a look
At the things worth more than a second glance
And then, the game shall be over...
And we'll all be doing
Our little victory dance!

Winning is NOT everything
It's how you play the game

How right you are JOY.
