A Marbles Metaphor

For from shooting for the stars,

some days I have lost my marbles

once housed in separate pods.

I find it harder

to hone once much well-worn skills

while upping my game.

Whether shooting rare jade

or healing brown onyx, I strive

to keep playing awhile.

For whoever stays in

the longest goes on to win.

One thought on “A Marbles Metaphor

  1. Loved the poem.
    One question the first line first word is it meant to by “for” or is it “far” ?

    And I feel he same way too, some days I have lost all my marbles, relatable poem.
