The game of life - poetry


When your life becomes unbearable
And the light of agreement ceases to glow,
When all your dreams and aspirations
Lie quiescent on ambition's death row.

When you feel that all is hopeless,
Life troubles just seem to abound.
When those you attention were supporters
Are all of a sudden nowhere to be found;

When weary from the struggle of trying
And you amazement to yourself, "What's the use?"
You fight on to do the best that you can
But once again, all hell breaks loose.

When effects in your life develop into disjointed
And all you touch turns stale.
When nerves are on edge from life's pressures,
And there's no breath with which to exhale.

When the road you are roaming gets bumpy
And the hills befall harder to climb,
When the going gets tougher and tougher
And persist for a greatly long time.

Remember, it's not what you anticipate from life,
But rather, what life expects from you.
When the wind of dilemma blows your way,
Life wants to see just how well you'll do.

You see, life is actually like live a game.
To win, you must play as it dictates.
If you abide by its built-in survival rules,
Your troubles will extraordinarily dissipate.

So when you near the end of your rope
When your back is hard-pressed to the wall.
When you're attentive all about by conditions
And you can scarcely move about at all.

Don't give up and wave surrender's flag.
Don't give way to the goads of strife.
Don't hang your head in resignation,
Don't stop before a live audience this game called life.

Just confront your troubles head on;
Face them all in prayer one by one.
You'll learn after a long or short while
The game of life can absolutely be won.

For your power will out of the blue increase;
Your concentration to fight on, He'll renew.
God will not give up His own blessed child;
He cannot and will not fail you.
