Practice

What makes you think you have to win,

that this is all a game?

 

I think that’s what they want you to think.

I think it’s what they’ve fed you since you were four.

 

Such a precious word, Practice.

 

Life is not winning and losing

and capitalism and greed

and first and last

and fixing and solving

and searching and striving.

 

Life is Practice–

for its own sake.

  1. I love this! It breaks my heart when I see parents pushing their kids at such a young age. It isn’t just sports, but I’ve seen parents do this with music and other activities that are supposed to be fun. Not everything is supposed to lead to a scholarship or a career. It’s okay to play a sport just for the sake of playing. Or play a musical instrument (badly even) just because you love music. So many kids grow into adults and they don’t know how to just be. They always have to be doing, running, earning, being productive.

    • I agree! That’s definitely a lifestyle this generation should not pass down to their kids. Like you say, it’s more important to just be and observe the way things really work. Thanks for your comment 🙂
