There's no book of rules

wisdom often dictates

when you're young and carefree

you just play along

with your mates

then age closes that door

and you suddenly mature

then life becomes real

not a game

anymore !

 

Life indeed

Is a gamble

like the throw of a dice

sometimes it pays dividends

other times, not so nice

It’s a chance that you take

knowing what's real from the fake

that's how we learn

by the choices we make.

 

At the University of life

you don't get a degree

the wise owl’s

learnt a lot

through maturity

he sits there and ponders

observing it all

watching some rise

and the others that fall.

 

I can only surmise

how that owl became wise

as I become older

It's less of a surprise !
