A game of Life!
Life is a game and we are the players,
It changes when it wants, by merely saying cheers.
It's dice has three sides, past, present and future,
All three by itself have a different feature.
For every human soul, the game of life is different,
It comes with a rule book, where things are stringent.
Each level, hard or easy, has something to offer,
But we get to choose, whether to agree or differ.
The game turns tables if we mess up,
Leaving us back there, with an empty cup.
The board this game played on, is destiny,
And this is the board, that, controls the game eventually.
It's not a bad game, just a little tough,
Comes with an empty bag, where all the things you stuff.
Some give up mid-way, some last till the end,
Some start off with a kick, but their board just bends.
Truly, life as a game, has no loss or win,
It's all on your play and the wheel you spin.
