Another victory is close

for my success has chosen me.
The tattered web of prosperity
that my life has woven me.
The outcome feels predictable
though the game has not begun.
I've declared myself the champion
before my trials are done.
I will always embrace my fate
so the outcome stays the same.
I play the role as victor
while some resign to play the game.
If I may keep the secret
that is sanctioned from my soul.
On anxious days I lose my ways,
my spirit pays the toll.
I hold the titles of father,
of brother, husband and son.
An honest bluff makes some seem tough,
the contender is but one.
At times like these I find myself,
beside myself, not lost.
The battle's fought, the lesson's taught,
I have not won nor lost.
