The Game

One incredible journey -
Reserved for curious travelers
Without a map - no particular direction,
Unrestricted, uncontrolled, unpredictable;
No obvious destination -
Enhanced by anticipation,
A search for happiness, love, success
Clouded by disappointment, fear, possible failure;
Created by individual perspective -
Positive, negative - right choice, wrong choice
No applause, no reprimand
Just pure exhilaration, or pure despair;
Continuous progression -
Prodded by endless curiosity
Infinite learning experiences
Culminating in awareness...............................
Ding....... Ding........Game Over
Want to play again?
