Ever flip a coin hoping to choose What never had a side? Ever hope it fell on its side Not yours or mine, but its. Its the introspective gamble, The bet we never made The thoughts we shattered Hoping their rebuilt selves would float away. But instead we find ourselves walking on shards Hoping to find the worlds' balance We rebuild in pieces But the scars never leave us. Walking taller the worlds would never propitiate. The past plays thinking it knows best, The present checks for an all-in future, But inaction has killed us before. Fallacious wisdom rises to fail For the trust of more over better. We sacrifice the selfless For the self to have less. I wish I could make you understand The direction our hearts dream of. But with every step You seem to forget This was never your game You gave me the chips Now please, let me play. I'm all in.
