Back to Square One

You fought …
Perhaps not hard enough
You bled …
Perhaps not nearly enough
You cried, tumbled, got back up, struggled
Kept your head above water
Dived under sharks and floating rubbles
Perhaps nothing was merely enough
For when you least expect it
The whistle blows
The judges set their votes
And without any knowledge
When, how or why
You are pushed back
Back to Square One
