leave the game

Peace is not easy
The world gets in the way
People like their familiar
Even when it's painful
Fighting is what they know

How do I avoid lonely
But also not participate
People come with drama
How do I not get treated poorly 
Without always fighting for me

How do I not aim to win
But also not aim to lose
People want to be the best
I have to step away from it
Leave the game

Standing slightly apart
Cautious towards the world
Choosing not to fight people
Developing habits that save me
From a culture trying to defeat me.
