Life is a dodgeball court.
You go about your day trying hard to keep from being slammed in the head by someone trying to knock you out of the game.
Constantly on the move to prevent yourself from being clobbered.
Suddenly, the ball is in your hands. It would be so easy to wail on the player in front of you and be victorious...but, you don't. You just can't. You realize it's not worth it.
So, doing the right thing, you merely toss the ball into center court, avoiding the bodies in front of you.
You could have been in control, but the pain you would have caused others isn't worth it to you. So instead, you continue to dodge, just trying hard to survive the game.
