All pauses are pregnant

Right before you win the race
You take your hands off the wheel
Success is a test
Right before you win the battle
You close your eyelids
Right before he’s built up the confidence
to finally admit that he loves you back
You throw in the towel and leave
You always leave
Right before they announce the winner
You decline the nomination
Right before you get everything that you ever wanted
You abandon the objectives
In search of something else to beat
Something else to break into
Something else to climb
Not because you’re ambitious
Success is a test that you always leave
right before that shit happens for you
because if you can get it anybody can get it…
(which ain’t even fucking true)
