Life is really a fool’s game –
we will never get out alive.
Still we fight, we hurt and we forget
when for happiness we should strive.
Life is really but a fool’s game
and somewhere along the way
we seem to take it for granted
as if forever alive we could stay.
Life will always be a fool’s game
and it’s up to everyone
to wake up in the morning light
and smile at the rising sun.
Haven’t really got into the pace of writing yet, but this is in response to Poets United Midweek Motif, where the prompt was to write a poem about something we are fools for. I got the Bonnie Tyler song ‘It’s a Heartache’ echoing through my head immediately, so it had to be about the fool’s game. Hope you enjoyed!
