Life is like a game of snakes and ladders
I have lived my life like a lottery
Tossing the dice on the ocean waves
Within the surge and swell of mockery
How wonderful it is to wake up and not know
Like a game of snakes and ladders
What life will bring you today, its your throw
What would life be if we knew our future?
Without trial and error, nor experiences
Bland, plain, no colour, nor magical conjure
Enjoy life it is a joy.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

"The gold-digger in the ravines of the mountains is as much a gambler as his fellow in the saloons of San Francisco. What difference does it make whether you shake dirt or shake dice? If you win, society is the loser."- Henry David Thoreau
