Just a Game ..


It's the game of life. Do I win or do I lose? One day they're gonna shut the game down. I gotta have as much fun and go around the board as many times as I can before it's my turn to leave- Tupac Shakur.
Be fun and enjoy this life as if  you are playing a game. Don't be a bore...... Enjoy it and have fun.

Disappointments, disturbances
are part of life
Diversions, distractions
all you strife
What matters, is how you
play this game
With endless hard disk
But, limited RAM

Ball is always
in your hands
your moves and mistakes
set the trends
they may turn
right or wrong
you may go
feeble or strong
Based on that
this game proceeds
So are your chances of
failure and succeed.

Its better to loose
the facts and counts
of impediments and hurdles
their roars and sounds
Inexorable they may be
Surely they'll be profound
But situations, do turn around
there's always a chance of
reboots and rebounds.

Crack your inertia
and spot that chance
its time to march on
ahead and advance
treachery and treason
can guise as friend
the toughest test of
self-prudence.

Defender, attacker
all roles, you have to play
there's no gate
to walk away
moves you choose
and the tracks you cruise
some can be new
others can be well-used.

What's ahead
no one knows
intelligence lies
in calm and compose
Let's play this game
with zero blemishes
and no-blames
Winning and loosing
ain't objects of shame
because,
It's just a game.

    We must perform prudently despite our limited RAM. Good creation.

  6. Good one! Reminds me of Shakespeare's quote 'All the world's a stage, and all men and women merely players'. We need to keep reminding ourselves that its just a game, a play.... there's no need to take it seriously every single second! :)

    हर के बाद ही जीत है

  13. You know, even in posts like these, you talk like someone from IT. That's good actually, and makes it cool to read, but I'd get a cheatbook database, if things went too bad :P

    very very beautiful, jyoti.....

    this game is beautiful...we are the striker, we are the goal keeper still we win, we lose...and continue playing....

    of course there cud be barriers, hurdles.....but all those are challenges which make the game more adventurous and joyuous....

    life goes the way want.....

  21. Good one Jyo! Lately I have been in an existential crisis. My mind wanders all the time between these thoughts you are talking about. I do not compete (thankfully) and I am least bothered about winning or loosing. but I often find myself struggling between my choices and the 'good/bad' defined by the 'people'.. anyway.. I have tried it and will keep trying what you said at the end
    '....Intelligence lies in calm and compose
    Let's play this game with zero blemishes
    and no-blames Winning and loosing ain't objects of shame because,It's just a game'

  22. Unlimited hard drive limited RAM, Reboot. Love the way you used computer speak in the poem. Sometimes when life gets overwhelming, rebooting is your best option..Save first!

  23. ...as you said, ‘it’s just a game’ no matter what... sometimes you win, sometimes you lose but success is not counted by the times you won a game but by the times you tried and did your best... Emily Dickinson once penned in a poem: “success is counted sweetest by those who never succeed..” and i whole-heartedly believe in that... thanks for the poem!(:

  24. but with caution,

    never become a "game" in this game.

    nice and novel thoughts.

  25. As I read this, I was hearing music. Have you ever given thought to putting your poetry to music, Jyoti? This piece could easily lend itself to a rap presentation, or to something lyrical and dreamy. The message is so strong - I'd love to hear it put to music!

    Keep writing, sweetheart!

  27. Jyoti,

    Loved uses of computer similes. And so true. May I add

    Life is a game which we have no option but to play,
    It does not matter whether we like it or not but we have to stay.

    Take care

    PS : No visits?

  36. You know, I've never been a competitive person. Ever. I've been in jobs where competition amongst co-workers is encouraged, and I found it a miserable experience. Striving for excellence on a personal level is a different thing entirely. That works much better for me and keeps me balanced and at peace inside. Then I can turn that peacefulness outward. :) Wonderful, thought-provoking post, honey!
