In A Motel in Hayward, California

What is the point of pain
if it doesn’t teach one how to live
What is the point of emotion
if it doesn’t teach you about yourself
the only point of losing is to learn how to win
fucking, sucking, smoking, joking
are all games to learn about the value of love
the importance of those around you

We hate only to learn the value of distance
the pain of faith and belief
God foresaketh thee to a wilderness of empathy

Everything is battle
a game of winners and losers
wandering through the field unequipped, untrained, and unprepared
