name one war that didn't have a losing side

what the fuck is all of this
I keep my head down
    (facing a desk)
I arch forwards, moan and wail
I cry for injustice,
but I am never heard
we do not tremble
all in spite their efforts
the tables can't hold us back
but look at us
the soldiers you train
you keep us tame
and you want us to
learn not to be scared?

how will I ever find my own pace
if every step I take
is diminished by
my age?

we keep on fighting
through words; through numbers
they toss our will around.
who's playing after all?
nobody can win a fight like this
