    shots are fired
    the competition is under way
    I struggle
    work at it
    only to find that he's ahead
    ...never even broke a sweat
    I hear cheering
    but it isn't my name being called
    so I work even harder
    only to be hurt once again
    while the cheering continues
    the the audience roars
    this competition has finally come to an end
    and I was not victorious
    but I wasn't surprised
    I have finally become accustomed
    to being second best

      great work!
    definitely something i can relate to...
    maybe there's a very good reason why you're second best : )

      wow nice work man. its very interesting and deep. sometimes we're just made to be second best and acceptance is better than trying to fight it out. well i loved this piece very much.

      This is sad. Especially the last line. I'm not usually the kind of person that cares about winning, but when I work extremely hard on something I expect to do well. And when I don't, I get angry at myself. So I sort of know how this feels. Anyways, nice work. I loved it.
