No ! life isn’t a puppetry show as projected by a handful few,
nor is it a scripted drama where some director will give you a cue.
Rather it’s seems like a virtual game where you survive by the skills you gain,
no there are no free lunches in the world, for your victory you face the pain.
To win over the challenges and hurdles, your moves you must decide,
your instinct, it never lies to you on the right path it always will guide.
So you forge your way, ahead you move, holding on to life’s music you constantly groove,
for being stagnant in your approach is never really allowed,
no life isn’t a scripted drama as a handful few make out.
It’s a maze, a chase, a process to create,
to evolve and achieve, fall down and retrieve,
leave an impression everlasting or fall apart like a false casting,
it’s all in the choice one makes !
So pull up your socks and fold your sleeves,
until you achieve a life as you please,
do not stop and don’t you fall weak,
your strength lies in you, you are all that you need!
