The Game of Life

I began life as a Christian, or at least I was told that.

Baptised to the lord, in my cute gown and white cap.

My childhood spent in pews, singing hymns about Jesus

How we’re all going to heaven and that’s meant to please us.

But religion has changed for me in my formative years

Not least through talk in dark pubs over beers.

But let me stop here, and explain something quick.

I quit religion, but I don’t think it’s a trick

I appreciate my parents and how I was raised.

Even if I no longer see that ‘lord’ I once praised.

God taught me some things in patience and love

Be good here on earth, but ignore what’s above.

The morals they teach, war and killing aside.

Should very much, I believe, be kept well and alive

Be good to each other, help fellow man.

If she needs you to do it, go shop for you gran.

Don’t steal, be a twat or in other ways hurt folks.

Share love, write music and tell all your bad jokes.

Nowadays I believe in science and technology.

I’m obsessed with deep space and all forms of astronomy.

If it’s proven and fact then I’m game to believe.

It’s amazing what mere humans can achieve.

We invent, we inspire, we heal and we fix.

We build and create using wires and bricks.

We’re living in space and flew to the moon.

We’d just learnt to fly but got there so soon.

What’s set for tomorrow and for years to come?

One things for sure, this species is not done.

I love this world, I truly think it’s ace

It doesn’t need explain by spirits with no face.

I love the folks who live here, even though some are nasty

But it’s our job to help them and create memories that are lasting.

We are who we are and we’ll all die the same.

So whilst we’re here, be good, be kind, play the game.
