The Game (Harmony Of Head And Heart By Moe Hein)


is a game of Snakes and Ladders
where fate is the dice.

At a throw,
you reach a ladder and fate lifts you.
So up you go!

Another throw,
you meet a snake and fate swallows you.
Down you go!

Come ladder or come snake,
care not and fear not.
Ups or downs
Let the dice dictate.

Keep on going, don't lose heart.
Keep on aiming, don't lose head.
Sure, sure, the game has to end.

At one time,
you will reach that ultimate shore,
where dice, snakes and ladders
are no more.

(From Poems On Life)
