Game start—get your character straight; decide who you’re supposed to be, and shape yourself within the mold

 

Pick your virtues and your vices; choose your allies and your foes

 

Factor in the setting—it’s important to know your place; is where you are where you want to stay? Is where you are all you want to be?

 

Nothing should define you so rigidly; allow yourself the opportunity to grow, to develop, to transform

 

Whoever said there was anything certain in the alternating reality we’re living?

 

Do you remember those rules we’re supposed to follow?

Which way was right, and which way was wrong?

 

Why should it matter in either case—both roads lead to the end

 

Your journey was never meant to go on forever, even though you neglected to choose a destination

 

Was that trickery or apathy on your part?

Do you rebel or remain disassociated by nature?

 

Game start—find the reason for your existence; figure out if the race is meaningful or not

 

Game over—have you completed your mission?

Did you win or lose? Did you pass or fail?

 

Did it matter after all?

 

Only you can know the answer…because it is yours

 

And we’re all still playing to find one of our own

 

Game start—who are you now?
