Blinded By The Light

There’s something more valued

than dollars and cents…

humanity trumping pretend


Your mantra has been

that “winning’s enough”

losing yourself in the end


Each attempt to be clever

and self-aggrandize

takes you away from what’s real


The most treasured of things

to be loved and endeared

—your actions can’t borrow or steal
