Game of life

Game of life,

Can be,

Exhausting, at times,

Daunting, most of the time,

Frightening, yet other times,

When unaware of yourself,

Standing apart from the crowd, you,

Figure out to carve a place,

Among the many,

Trying to be like peas in a pod,

Forgoing individuality,

Making efforts to fit in the normal scheme of things,





Will all be that you’ll be rewarded with,

It takes time and effort definitely,

To realise the uniqueness,

Rather than be one among the crowd,

It takes courage to stand out,

Like light in darkness.

95 words.

Thought behind the poem :- Knowing our strength and uniqueness is definitely a boon. It takes time and effort, undoubtedly, to know ourselves. Look within.

  1. It’s funny how that works out, isn’t it. Trying so hard to fit in until you realize how precious your individuality is. I like the idea of standing out like light in the darkness ❀
