Playing On Purpose

This is what my mind enjoys. Does it relate to anything?
It is a career possibility now. Will it stay a beloved game?
Can doing nothing with my life
turn into doing something real?

Making it to the world does equal
the highest level of risk.
Am I willing to dedicate all my time
and to sacrifice myself on a daily basis?

'If you don't win, why do you play'¹,
would I resign this each week again?
If not, my mind won't be strong enough.
Otherwise this must mean the call of my profession.
