The Battle Of Life

The Battle Of Life

Life is like a game of chess
You plan every move you make
Life is like a beautiful dress
It’s not all you see that you take
Look closely, there’s a flicker of hope
Necessity is what propels men to excellence
Be firm, use it as a rope
Tenacity is what preserves men in affluence

Life is like a ball in motion
You have it, play it well
Life is a cat that causes tension
It takes a brave rat to bell
The battle of life is not for the fastest
Neither is it for the wisest alone
But sooner or later, the bravest
Will beat the bait and get the gold.

    very nice poem, my fav lines?
    Life is like a ball in motion
    You have it, play it well…
    brings to mind the concept of time and how fickle life can be…
    good work!

  3. @Meena: true that.
    Here are my fav lines,
    “Look closely, there’s a flicker of hope
    Necessity is what propels men to excellence
    Be firm, use it as a rope
    Tenacity is what preserves men in affluence”
