A Poem About Life

A poem about life by Anthony Villegas on April 10th, 2015. 

Life is a game we all must play.
Life is a game in which we have no say. 
The rules are set that we must follow, 
No time to waste,
No time to wallow. 
So why do we care so much of life? 
It filled with hardship. 
It filled with strife. 
So why do we care so much of life? 
That darling friendship,
The darling wife. 
What makes us follow such sets of rules? 
To wake up each morning and go to school. 
To find a job,
To buy a house, 
To spend each moment with family & spouse. 
Why do we follow such sets of rules? 
Going through life as silent fools. 
We take tradition as law,
And law as order,
Living blindly each day within our borders. 
We grow blind to our debts,
We grow blind to our problems, 
We grow blind with hopes that one day He will solve them. 
"So let us be blind!" they say,
"So let us play!" 
"We choose to follow these every day." 

Then when the game gets tough and harder to face, 
We can rely on the rules to set it all in place.
