I don’t understand why spiteful, debilitating office politics exist.
Or why friends thoughtlessly betray their closest friends.
Or why a man proposes to a woman he claims to love and then changes his mind right before their wedding day.
I don’t understand why unsolicited champions suddenly become vehement enemies.
Or why stalwart protectors unexpectedly become vicious accusers.
Or why jealousy transforms previously selfless individuals into unrecognizable versions of themselves.
The longer I run then the less that I find
Selling my soul for a nickel and dime
Breaking my heart to keep singing these rhymes
And losing again
…playing on repeat.
