Too Ugly to Lose
They called him fat, sloppy, and dull —
an ugly duckling.
The fold around his back, they frequently called sausage rolls
Ugly toad, one of many terrible names,
many bad comments have gone untold.
If he chooses to sleep and refuses to awake
Perhaps, they will stop calling him names;
giving him false titles, troubling his days.
If he refuses to awake, perhaps,
his wailing will end;
And his bitter days will no longer be on constant replay
If he lives, he’ll feel lost. If he dies, he’ll still lose:
What then will he choose? What then should he choose?
Choose life, my friend
because regardless of what today brings,
better days lie ahead and…
you owe it to yourself to witness bliss.
Some situations are just too ugly,
too ugly… to lose.
