The Winning Side

Looking at you to see is there

a light shining in your eyes,

or has it gone out after been

swallowed up by all the lies.

Have you given up trying

after all these years,

worn out and exhausted

from shedding all your tears.

Have you now settled for second best

so at long last you can finally rest.

Has your spirit died

alongside your pride,

no longer interested in

ending up on the winning side.

Could you not take another failure

and have come to the conclusion

that there is no saviour.
