nothing to lose

so many ways
to lose in life
so easy it is
to go there too
to a place where your self-worth
wants nothing to do with you
once you are out of the game
the harder it is to get back in
easy to convince yourself
you aren't what they want anyway
even though no one will
come right out and say it
it's clear as day
you are nothing
but a bad cliche
where there's a will there's a way
the path of least resistance
says not everyone can win the race
there's always a loser
and for every race you lose
part of that winning spirit
gets lost along the way
eventually surrendering
to the voice inside that says
you've got better things
to do with your time
when in reality you've really got
nothing to lose
