The Game and the Score

I smile whistling
past a graveyard
like it makes me
stronger than
the cold hand
we all feel
on our shoulder
at some point.

I’ll push you away
because you’re
going to
walk away anyway,
so you may as well
do it on my terms.

And in a couple hours
it’ll be sunrise again.
Another day of people
to compete with
and feel less than.
Another day to
sleep through,
because people
are hell.

I watch life pass me by,
and if I smile
as I wave,
that means I won.

-GD Butler
