…you have to work within the system sometimes
… and learn how to play
… work to change the system
… for a time,staying in it
… and realize, things may get far worse
…before they get better


… perhaps we would fare better
…if we sacrificed a little of ourselves; sometimes
… to learn how to beat it
… to learn how to play the system
… the only way out is to play
…even if at first things appear to get worse


… life has been worse
…life can be better
… life is unbearable, sometimes
… you cannot avoid it
…if you cannot work within the system
… you will find, that you will go nowhere, without knowing how to play


… life works that way; we are all characters taking part in a play
… if we do not learn our parts, life can get worse,
… before it can get better,
… sometimes;
… you can fight to change it
… but you have nothing, if you cannot work the system


… sometimes you can try and break free from the system
… once you learn how to play
… you manage to break free; sometimes
… and once you know better
… you will know, how not to make things worse
… only then will you be able to escape, and be free of it


… only when you can work within the system, you can work to break it
… the oppression, and the fixed system
… the games we must all play
… for worse
… and for better
… we don’t have a choice, sometimes


…you must sacrifice sometimes … play in hopes to win it
…it is the game you must play  … for your freedom, by shattering the system
… but remember, it may get worse …before it gets better
