The Chalkboard

Keeping Score

The chalkboard of life,

Born with a clean swipe,

Beginning to end,

Notching them down,

Marking them in,

Celebrate those good times,

Compare and contrast,

Looking at others,

The roles we’re cast,

Build ourselves up,

Settle the scores,

Greater the marks,

Only leave us yearning for more,

Our chalkboard fills,

Only to realize,

No one cares,

No one is keeping score.
