Snakes & Ladders

Snakes and ladders. The game we’ve all grown up with. The game that never gets old. The game that gets you so engrossed that you actually fight to win. Yes, its just another board game but one with success and failure and risk. Synonymous with life, isn’t it?

So often we reach the peak in our lives, it’s as good as it can get. On occasions we fall to our faces. Success and failure are equally unpredictable. No doubt you wish for one and not the other. You even work towards one and not the other yet they both depend on chance. While one takes a lot of effort, the other comes your way rather easily. Nothing comes with a warning. Not your achievements, nor your downfalls. And yet it’s a game you never give up on.

Your opponents change, your challenges vary. But the game still goes on.
