The Only Ones Who Ever Win

The Only Ones Who Ever Win
Opening

Out of our separate lives we come,

to walk this path together for an hour or a day,

for a week or a month or a series of months and years.

For this space of time we travel together,

making much or little or nothing at all of the fact

that another walks beside us.

We can keep our eyes cast down

protecting ourselves from the pain we risk

whenever we allow another human being to touch us,

living safe little lives inside our sterile wrappings.

Or we can reach out,

risking a little or a lot or every coin we have,

because we believe that loving and being loved

is the only game in town.

The choice is ours.

Those who risk much lose much.

But they are also the only ones who ever win.
