Iceberg Model

Day 9 Prompt: “How to win the game.”

surviving is just the tip of the ice berg
what’s beneath the frozen edifice
is what you have to watch out for
edges that could cut you
facets that can reflect the things you may not want to see
there are leagues of stories down there
of things you’ve never even heard of
can only imagine
lives you will never live
shoes that have walked a separate path
we’re all fighting to tell our story
it’s only a game if you play it like one
getting to the top doesn’t make you a winner

-E.E.
