Maybe, just maybe
Maybe, it is the bad economy.
Maybe, they really are out to get you.
Maybe, your parents did a crappy job raising you.
Maybe, you’ve had some real heartaches, a true loss (or two).
Maybe, they knocked you down.
Maybe, you just muttered to yourself, “fuck this.”
We get it.
But maybe …
Just maybe, you were meant to win.
You stood back up, like a bloodied prizefighter.
Maybe, just maybe, you summoned a little more courage.
You sounded your barbaric yawp.
You worked harder, trained longer and out-hustled them all.
Maybe, just maybe, you looked back and realized that, in fact, you won.
