Deal With Life


Sometimes it works,
Sometimes it does not,
Costing you each penny you have
With no mercy,
Or double your benefit,
But sooner or later
It must be done,
The deal with life;
The only store you cannot leave
Without making a purchase,
Satisfied or not,
There is no escape.
Neither relies on you
Nor another,
In itself it is a treasure.
Although Rules of that deal are harsh,
You still have a way to play.
However,
You give up, open the door
And leave the store,
You won't be able to take a step back
Asking for a dice to play,
To start a new deal
As to you,
It will be over,
Another one is holding the dice,
Thinking about
Doubling his benefit.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
