A Tragedy of Strategy

Everyone is hurled,
Tossed into this world
A piece on the vast board
Filled with triumph and scorn
But mostly goals formed


Playing the game
Bumping into pain
Trying everything in vain
But you're still losing
Losing yourself
Running away

And eventually,
Your identity
Is swiftly tossed,
Thrown out  the criss-crossed
Window of emotion
Because anyone looking in
Shouldn't see
Can never know
Who you are
What you've been through
And what you've seen
Before your shutters were slammed


It's a tragedy of strategy
A simple act of infamy
As squandered by stupidity
Is a life filled to infinity
