Most say better to have played and lost then never play at all
I respectfully disagree
If you don’t play you can’t lose
Don’t try and you can’t get hurt
Disappointment progresses and is followed by questions
These in turn are the things we use in pity
Asking why something occurred after you already know the answer
Questioning is followed in turn by despair
Despair is when you feel you can sink no lower
When the world around you spirals into blurs
When everything falls into place in the wrong ways
When life has no meaning
When questioning what it would be like to die
A dark lonely place only reached by those in sadness
Those sent here can be saved
By friends and trusted helpers
Brought back from the void
And helped back into light
