Life I Call It


life give you what you deserve but not what you want
it is featured with dos and don't
a teacher it is and we remain students
not always fair to the prudent
nut very simple to the wise
its options never come twice
having the chance to cast it dice
its sweetness taste very nice
time brings it activities
fools remain in it captivities

to be successful is not easy
till you constantly remain busy
to all living assigns vision
each day equipping you with provision
hate those who rush
rewarding them with maximum crush

life is beautiful and simple
like the smile of a dimple
its trials makes us worry
leaving us with an interesting story
it remain a gift each day
and a teacher to direct your way
death remain a certificate
graduating us from our mate
life i call it
endure and remain fit.
