Life is like a game of chess,

the moves you make determine the next.

Life is like a building,

people are excited when it is first built, but they slowly lose interest.

Life is like a banana,

it grows, ripens, then decays.

Life is like a lovely meal,

you enjoy it for a moment, but it is suddenly over in an instant.

Life is like a clock,

the hands gradually change.

Life is like a roundabout,

when things are going your way, you suddenly turn around and you go back to where you started.

Life is like a Christmas present,

you never know what you're going to get.
