Life's Game (thought)


If life is a game,
What are the odds I might win?
Give me a tally, what out of ten?
If all I had was my name,
And the odds, for me, were the same,
How should I proceed?
What are the odds I may fail?
And what do I do if I succeed?

    For some people life is postponed, I know its a struggle but its the only struggle we have, success is frightening because it means we have to reach another level, another level with more difficulty and some times it makes us want to stay at one level, but we have to give it a chance.

    Concise and too the point. Simply written but deep. What is considered a successful life? (Report) Reply

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
