Robin's Realm

 

Game of Life

 

Is it all a game

This thing we call life

 

Is there really 3 strikes

and you are out

Is it really that you

score when a touchdown is made

Is it really a goal

when the puck goes in?

 

Is there such a thing

as a fair ball or a fair catch?

 

The days of the game go on

This game called life

 

I donít want to sit on the bench

I donít want to stand on the sidelines

 

I want to be one of the starters

In this game called life

I want to be the star

I want to shine

 

So come on game

Throw me those curves

Let me get those tackles

 

I am ready for you

I will shine

I will be the star

That appears in the headlines

 

The headlines that read

Game won!!!

 

Robin was the star player

She played well

She played fair

She conquered it all

That it had to offer

 

This game they call life
