A poem I made for a contest once upon a time ago. (Let me know if the center text bothers anyone.)


Once More

One more dance with life,

One more drink of gin,

One more game in love and war,

The kind no one ever wins,

One more pointless death,

One more than welcomed birth,

One more time to grit your teeth,

And show the world your worth,

One more show of confidence,

That really isn't there,

One more time to lose your way,

One more chance to understand,

One more reason to cry,

And hide from those who care,

One last light of hope,

Through my endless tired stare,

No more time to worry,

About the who, what, where, and when,

Which is all the more reason to wake up,

And do it all once more again,
