Losing the Winning RaceRace horses run,hereby won,Gallop so fast,so there comes a last.You cannot beat the furious rest,Worn divided chambers of the downtrodden chest.Bear the weight of the jockey above,Whip clenched in the spent brazen glove.Escape stays away no matter the run,The race you are in is already won.Realize how far it is 'til you're done,The audience in your world continuously spun.The mangled maine,The lame leg,Treacherous trip,The broken back;The measured meek,the luck and loss,of tiring times,hereby stack.Where is the glory of still loosing?Sights stop on the surface covered in bruising.So many losers to thin out the rest,Eliminate those to bring down the best.Blame what to know what it means to have won,Bag of bones slain, gathered and weigh as a ton.See there would be no life here under the gun,Stare on and look forward to dry under the sun.Grind your teeth and splinter the bone,The factory makes do with your forgotten thrown;Perhaps your fine glue will bond an

Make my world breath and flux. For even to bring salt and water, you still can so beautifully shape the cracked and withered sands of the stagnant lands.Your face I shall know for I see that it does not escape my thoughts. I may not always be able to enjoy your splendor, but as the stars shy away, your image will hold, to know you are somewhere to be found.
