Game of Life


Every day
I run a marathon
Untrained and starved
Of energy and broke
Of hope
I water wade with weighted boot
Upstream with goad
Of heavy loads
To have to carry through
Unseemly hours
Lengthening to last
Too long too far
I’m dumb but have to sing
A song or I shall die
The test is always mine
To fail and fall
Or scrape through all
And only to repeat the same
Defeat of feat impossible
Destined to lose
We all will do
Inevitable at our end
To rest in dust
Till then begin I must
Attempt the unattainable
Refrain of game of life
