Life's Game (Poem)


In a game of survival
Companions were reduced into rivals
Charging ahead on a circular path
Like boarding a plane with no arrival

The game-makers gently say
There is only one way you can stay
Adapt to our game faster than anyone else
As our rules change from play to play

Then the moment of truth finally came
That I need to change this game
Towards the freedom I will walk
And my world will never be the same
