Sometimes I had to sprint, sometimes I had to do a steady and slow marathon. Sometimes it was a crazy lane with hurdles. I even lifted some crazy weights and swung it across the field. It was a fun game of tag with friends. A family friendly night of trivia. Sometimes a foxy night of strip poker with the partner. The point is my whole life is like Olympics, just not summer or winter. Filled with all seasons and every games. But you know what, I’ll be honest, most of the time, I felt like I’m standing on the side lines, watching people play my favorite game because I felt like I’m not good enough or I was frozen with fear or sometimes I didn’t even knew I loved that game. Many a time, I was in the wrong game, playing for the wrong team, still not scoring. Finally I decided the best game for me, I have chosen the best team which I love and I stepped inside. All I see before me is the endless horizons of playing field filled with hurdles for me to overcome and grow, with people I love and admire. There’s nothing to stop me from playing my game, not even me.
Win or lose, the fun
with the run Is what I choose
In my game of life!
I’m just falling in love with Haibun. It’s like magic, Poetry and prose fused together. All the more reasons to write and read!
Haibun (俳文, literally, haikai writings) is a prosimetric literary form originating in Japan, combining prose and haiku.
