Rubik's Cube

Six faces. Six colours. How hard could it be?
But it is. You get one piece into place, two others are disturbed.
Keep at it and you figure out some simple rules…
There is always that one stubborn piece that refuses to flip around– you want to yank it out and push it back in.
Books reduce it all to a series of moves. A perfect cube is easy to attain.
But is that the point? You like bumbling around, trying to reach your own levels of satisfaction. The thrill is in the quest.

Isn’t that how Life is too?

I've never thought about it that way, but now that you mention it, you're 100% correct.Both about how life is a Rubik's cube and the Rubik's cube on the whole.
