The Game Of Life - Poem by Neil Crosby

Life is a game
Some strife for fortune and fame
Others struggle to get by
others live think life as nothing more than a sigh
One life to live, and be free
People don't tend to see
That life is how you chose
If you chose a bad path, you lose
in this game
Win or Lose

    The game as a metaphor for life isn't that bad. Like in the game of chess those in power can make a pawn sacrifice whenever they feel like. The reason we keep on going is the hope to make it to the other end of the table and become a king, queen or a president. (Report) Reply

    life is not a game,
    it may be a nightmare full of pain but its not a game...
    if it was a game,
    then life would be shame...
    people and crying a child is always crying,
    but this is not a game,
    theres too much pain for life to be put into one game
