A Game of Risk (Poem)

Updated: Feb 19

A place covered with reddish color

To conquer the world,

Is something that many can do.

(Even I, and even you too).

However, it is,

A question of if you'll actually achieve this.

(Potential does not guarantee success).

You will succeed and fail,

All dependent on the roll of the dice!

(Deserving does not mean you'll prevail).

So be cold, as ice,

And see if the cards will, win, once, twice, or thrice!

(Life's but a game of..)



Risk!

Even if solitude's a possibility,

There is no immunity;

From ill,

From the suffering that be either distant or immediate;

Yes.

So don't be still,

Don't, just wait,

For the fatigue to just disappear away!

For you can still conquer every place where there's a Kate…

So give, the order, give what you have to say!


Red, yellow, grey,

Can all make you wish to stop and keep at bay!

(For some it's just the push of a certain button).

Green, and blue,

Might tempt you to desire defeat.

(Many people, that's what they want to do).

But why give up?

Why give up when you can make a feat?

(Even if it will consume nine thousand a coffee cup).

Think on your, behalf,

On the probability of being greater, than yourself!

(Life's but a game of..)


Risk!

Even if solitude's a possibility,

There is no immunity;

From ill,

From the suffering that be either distant or immediate;

Yes.

So don't be still,

Don't, just wait,

For the fatigue to just disappear away!

For you can still conquer every place where there's a Kate…

So give, the order, give what you have to say!
