    Game of Life

    Through the pain
    and back again
    So, throughout Life we go

    Through ups and downs
    and turn-arounds
    All are a part of the show

    If your feet leave the ground
    or you step out-of-bounds
    YOU are OUT of the game

    Don't' arrive before Fate
    come very late
    Or get ready to enjoy the wait

    Just line right up, while
    you get in single-file
    Be sure to put on a big smile

    If you can handle the wait
    if you,re not in a state
    Life can be one heck of a game

    Life can sure be a game. We seem to think we are braver than we really are and tend to bend the rules.

    "if you,re not in a state" ***you're*** (Sorry. I just correct little mistakes like this for people and some do the same for me. (:) But its a great poem because I like your comparison of life as a game. (: Good job. I especially like the first and last paragraph.

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
