Poetry: “Game of life”

How it might seem.

***~***~***~***

Game of life

Starting slow
Extra throw
Moving up
One more step
Luck runs out
Wait a turn
Back one step
Where you were
Held up by
Rotten luck
Oh, those dice
Don’t like you
Being passed
One by one
See them take
Jumps ahead
Being knocked
Back a ways
Wonder what
Is the point
Don’t give up
Hanging on
Bit by bit
Dice that roll
See the goal
Loom ahead
You’ll get there
Just you wait
