I Write Because

I write because life is hard
It’s like a deck of cards
There’s no control of the hand you get
You just have to play and place your bet
If luck is good and your faith is high
There is no doubt you’re flying in the sky

You say jack but it’s an ace
It’s over now you’ve lost your race
You fall and stumble around
You and your tears lay on the ground
You hope and you pray
To find better luck today
I write because life is hard

You pick up a pen and write a word or two
Just to keep track of the things you do
Your words have become something like a book
So you take a look
You call King and now it’s right
Life is now looking bright
I write because life isn’t always hard.
