Fate’s Game

Through a thousand tears,
I still can’t see the end.
It seems it’s been years
since fate has given in.
I’ve danced in the rain
around in my sorrows,
seen the sun shine again
only to be cast entirely in shadows.
This seems like a game
a constant, endless spin
where I’m filled with shame
and then find hope within.
I’ve had enough wars.
I’ve gotten worn down
and covered in battle scars.
Still, it comes back around.
Winning seems so far away,
every battle ends in a draw,
begging for you to stay.
To win seems impossible.
