The dice is rolled; My journey of life begins; I set foot on this road. Faith carries me far enough to make me believe in a god. The dice is rolled;
My journey of life begins; I set foot on this road.
Faith carries me far enough to make me believe in a god.
I climb many ladders because of the virtues I hold.
The King in me savours the days I spend in the city of gold.
I am living a life of endless luxuries; my life will definitely be told.
I swim in pools of pride saying goodbye to my past.
My glass is always filled to the brim with lust.
Friends who helped me get to the top I shake off like dust.
I keep living for the moment like this life will forever last.
I am so obsessed with the pleasure of this world.
Such that I forget about the thorns that lay on the path initially trod.
Suddenly I am falling like Alicia; my piece placed at the bottom of the game board.
Life has rolled the dice fairly; I’ve been pierced by karmas sword;
Stripped off of my wealth, now am naked as a dressed chicken.
Accumulating wealth for ‘self’ was all I was seeking.
But for tossing away my virtues, I wouldn’t have invited a dark cloud.
Because eversince my heart was mantled with darkness its been raining hard.
One move pushed me down the belly of the snake;
Harsh realities have made me wide awake.
