Are we the only ones anxious here ,
Moaning the loss of a battle not even fought ,
Or celebrating the winning of a war yet to take place .
Are we the only ones fearing here ,
Of a failure that may just never take place ,
Of a victory that sometimes seems just a mile away .
Are we the only ones here losing sleep over a thing which isn’t greater than life ,
If the madness is ok , isn’t detachment too a key .
If passion is ok, isn’t obsession an extreme ,
So what if ,
What if I hold on to the process ,
Fight a fair fight ,
And be detached from the goal ,
Would that bring us solace ?
Would it ?
