288. Who wants to play?

Who wants to play
With fear?
It dies
Even before the game starts.

Who wants to play
With doubt?
It never stops
Once it starts playing.

Who does not want to play
With truth-sun,
With love-moon?
They play all games so well.
They are so considerate.
They have become
My real and eternal friends.
