When You Risk More Than You Have To Lose

image
sometimes you risk
more than you have to lose

sometimes it hurts
and there are no words to choose

sometimes your kindness
is abused

sometimes they look
into your grief
and for your sorrow
they give more pain

sometimes the cruelty
never ends

sometimes you risk
and you lose again

and you lose

and you lose

and you lose yet again

and once you lose
it all

there is no more
to lose

there is no more
to lose

and so you dig deep
and deeper still

beneath the evil
and the cruel
that seems
to have no end

it seems
to follow grief
and sorrow
it seems
to never end

and when you are
already down

it is
your broken heart
they choose
to stomp upon
again

when all is taken
and there is no more
to take away from you

you weep
you cry
you ask why

and when your done
you take a deep sigh

and you want to
desperately
run away

but in that sigh
that quivers
from the tears
that would not end

you realize
your breath
still remains

they didn’t
take that
away too

they didn’t take
your breath
away from you

you’re still alive

and you find relief
in the power
to walk away

and then somehow
you rise again

and beyond
the pain
and the cruelty
that tried to break you
once again

without even
knowing why

there is yourself
there is your voice
and your hand
to write again

and then you realize
in the end
it is not you
who lose
but them
