Prizes ended the purity of motion - Deepstash

Prizes ended the purity of motion

What was once a game had now become something more. 

A fight for survival. 

A race to the finish. 

And suddenly, man’s talents drowned in an ocean of fear and anxiety. 

What was once innocent, became “competitive.” 

What was once pure, became “strategic.” 

The game was no longer about the game. 

The game was now about the prize. 

Fellow players were no longer fellow players. 

They now became “opponents.”
