Lifes a game.
There is no instruction manual on how to live it.
No set religion,
Morals or what is important to you,
What makes it worth it.
Lifes a puzzle.
You go through most of your life looking for the missing peices,
And hopefuly by the time it's over,
The whole picture makes sense.
Its a guessing game.
No right or wrong answers.
Yes or no.
A or B.
You have to take a chance.
Its selfish, not far and takes more then it needs to,
But in the long run,
You gain something.
No get-out of jail free card,
Or pass go and collect $200 on your way.
Its a bitch,
But its also a friend.
Its the roommate that puts the empty milk carton back in the fridge,
But also the one who leaves you sweet, heart felt messages on the bathroom mirror when you are in the shower.
Its a tug-of-war game,
Just when you think you are getting ahead,
It feels like the whole world starts to crash down on you.
But it goes both ways,
When times are tough and you think that you wont make it,
Its always got your back ready for the sun to shine in where you thought that it couldn't.
I doesn't make sense,
So there is no point in trying to dicipher its many riddles.
