My life is like a game of Tetris
The blocks keep falling but I have to stack them
Unexpectedly they change form and size
With a steady flow my blocks continue to rise
These blocks are like my problems, dropping one by one
I have to place them carefully so I'm not overcome
Overcome by the weight of them all
Finally I get a break and watch a few stacks fall
But they don't stop; they continue to drop
Red ones, blue and purple ones. I can't let them reach the top.
Stay in control and think rationally
Try to think ahead and put them where they need to be
This one is big so I'll place it over there
It can sit there for a while until I decide what to do with the rest.
For a while I've got it under control;
Drop one here; put one there
I'm actually doing well with these test.
Then to my surprise I slip up and one is turned the wrong way...
Uh oh! Here come my feelings of dismay.
NOW HOW AM I GONNA FIX THIS BIGGER PROBLEM THAT I'VE MADE???
Just try to stay calm and keep playing the game
I know I can make it through this, so I won't give up
I'll keep on stacking and stacking; my shoulders are tough
I always seem to find a way to fill in all the holes
That way some of the burden is gone and no one ever knows
No one ever knows the panic subdued inside.
I do so well with the problems that I hide
Although these blocks aren't hidden in my mind
Some day they will disappear for good; when I see the game over sign
