Scarred and Battered

That which is won without great struggle is a booby prize of no worth. Could anyone who has lived a few years think that which is valuable is left unguarded or is relinquished without prolonged and violent battle?

Fake prizes are only satisfying to those without fortitude to confront challengers and enter into conflict, risking consequences.

Recognizing this danger and not caring enough to win anything worth winning, they settle for useless scraps, celebrated only when everyone is given equal trophies for success and failure alike.

Those willing to fight get battered and scarred many times, but wounds mostly heal and are the price for taking a chance to taste what is best in life.
