Life- The Ultimate game,
Is the best with very strong design anyone can name.
The Architect of life is the Lord and Master
Who remains the game's Designer.

The game begins in the womb,
Only to end in the tomb.
Every player is presented with choices,
A solid collection of complex choices.

The choices are not made to be boring,
Nor are they designed to be confusing;
To make the game a complete fun
With or without any fund.

Some choices are tactical,
Some are technical;
Some are spiritual,
Some are intellectual.

The choices before us are infinite,
The choices must be definite;
Because the consequences are interesting,
Interesting and motivating.

As we age,
Moving near the cage;
Simple decisions in early life,
Grow into complex decisions in life.

With every resource to deploy,
Life's purpose is to enjoy;
To grow,
Although this may be slow.

Be a good player,
As you do all things in prayer;
Respect all other players,
Winners or losers from all layers.

Develop your own skills,
Don't join anyone that kills;
To at all costs win
By any sin.

Take the play of the game seriously,
But not so seriously
As to become overly attached,
But, to the outcomes be loosely attached.

Don't be a sore loser,
Nor a sore winner.
Be magnanimous in victory,
And be humble in glory.

The whole life game embrace,
Only ask for the grace;
Don't resist any part of it,
That you may not regret it.

Be not caught up in the subgames,
Because there are endless subgames;
They are only pieces of the larger puzzle,
The larger you must pursue.

Do not sit on the sidelines,
Watching from the sidelines;
Worrying about life's complexities,
Living with all perplexities.

From the game of life, choose your size,
To win a prize;
Amateur, average, advanced or expert,
Just begin to grow to become an expert.

Never concentrate on the monsters
satan, the world, the flesh: ever present monsters.
Co-operate more with your teammates,
Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and the Scriptures, the unbeatable teammates!

Get up to play,
Start to play today;
Until the day comes to die,
When others left behind will cry.

You make some good points in this poem. It's true that some people are just players.

Some of your rhymes felt forced or were the same word instead of a rhyme. There's nothing wrong with that but sometimes consistency can help the flow. I noticed some lines had just a few syllables while others had double or triple.

You definitely make some great points in this piece and some thought provoking lines. Good job.
