Let’s play Life

Let’s play Life ode

Life is a game of Rummy, game of chances and skills,
You got to play with what’s doled out to you,
The Aces, the Kings, the Queens and the Jacks,
And pip cards with value from two to ten,
So play my dear, play your game, but be wise

The Ace, the two, the three and four of heart,
Your parent and siblings do give your life a start,
Lucky indeed, when entire sequences of heart,
Is doled out to make for a wonderful life, Pure Life,
So play wise, and don’t break away this Pure Life

As this game advances, of draw and discard,
Just like life, you meet people and then part,
You need to keep the ones which fit in perfect,
Not with just a card or two, but the entire set,
So be wise, not just instinct, but also use your head

To win this game of rummy, as to build a happy life,
It is binding on you to, but, build one more of a Life,
The second Life is ‘O’ so important, you need to know,
It’s the one that brings happiness and winning strike,
So play wise, draw, but discard ever so wisely

Colourful they look, the Ace, King, Queen and Jack,
Difficult they are to settle with in life, or Life and Sets,
With all of them in your hand you could be a winner,
But with a single one missing you could lose bad,
So be wise, discard them, when the time is right

The pips of two to ten maybe modest in their value,
But dependable they are, to make you into a winner,
For Life they are O so perfect, as they are for sets,
With a joker sure they will complete your hand in time,
So keep you cards, your life low, for that’s the mantra to win

‘O’ the Joker, ‘O’ the Joker, so important he is,
When you get one, don’t lose, for none are like him,
When the mighty King, Queen, Jack or Ace, ditch you,
It will only be the joker, who will save your grace, your face, your Life.
So be humble, play humble and be very wise, as in game, so in life.

(Could not help but find the similarity between playing this game and the way we need to manage relationships in our lives. – Dedicated to the never die spirit of the soul that touched my life and the beautiful soul who inspired me to express my feelings in ode)
