Change

why do we try?
is it the possibility of failure that
lures us?
is it the game?
white or black, win or lose
good or evil
who cares?
we roll the dice

why do we try?
is it the boredom of remaining
stagnant
the risk of stagnation
turning to decay?
is it that we hate our
present selves
and scream for change
cause we’re not okay
just the way we are?

why do we try?
seriously
what motivation drives us to risk
everything
to risk failure, fear, rejection
for a little taste
of success?
for the hope that
things will be different
now

the answer is one
you already know
and don’t like:

we try to change
only because it’s too damn painful
to stay the same
