Playing the victim

There are real victims.
This post is not about them.

Nowadays everybody seems to have found a reason
why they are a victim.

Playing the victim is profitable.
It gives you attention, sympathy, even money.
Maybe even a group to belong to,
and a cause to fight for.

But at the end of the day
you are still sitting at home with yourself
and when you look in the mirror,
what you see is an unhappy victim,
because that is the role you are playing.

And what I like to do,
is give you a hug,
and to whisper in your ear:
Are you sure you want to keep playing the victim?
