locker room

are you looking for secrets?

shortcuts and delight?

perhaps someone's questions

whose answers are right?

is the sport in the victory

but not in defeat?

or does struggle with strength

in itself seem complete?

when the game hits conclusion

and one side has won

does your playing with passion

surrender to fun?

let's gather again

when the tournament ends.
