Life's a Game

2 Reviews

Wake up, eat food, wear clothes, act good,

Study like you know you should.

Come back home and set things straight

Then go to sleep, don't hesitate.

-------

Life's a game,

Games have rules,

We're all pieces,

Pawns and tools.

Know your part,

Do your turn,

Then shut your mouth,

Repeat.

-------

Be nice, be brave, be sweet, be strong,

Go to school and marry young.

Get a job and do it well,

Your future won't be hell.

-------

Life's a game,

Games have rules,

We're all pieces,

Pawns and tools.

Know your place,

Be content,

Then keep on keeping on.

-------

Sleep in, eat shit, stay home and hide,

There simply isn't hope outside.

Time's a sea, the days the tide,

I'm age-old wood, now petrified

-------

Life's a game,

Games have rules,

We're all pieces,

Pawns and tools.

Walk in place,

Wear a smile,

And try to hide your pain.

-------

Grow up, live on, and work to win

The game we're all embedded in.

Learn the rules and suffer through

There's nothing else that you can do.

-------

Life's a game,

Games have rules.

We're all broken,

We're all used.

Find your heart,

Make it grow,

And hope that that's enough.

Author Notes: Forgive my pessimism
