Life’s a gamble
Some people find happiness twice
And others never.
Some catch a chance
Make it big; cash it in,
But for every hit
There are many misses.


Love’s a gamble
For some it’s a suture
Other it’s like bruise
For every love
There are twenty hates
A bed of roses; sans thorns
Or, losing your heart in a useless hand.


Each turn of life: a play for thrills
A fifty-fifty gamble
Hoping for the jackpot
Rolling the dice time after time
Betting the odds in numbers and rhyme
Trying to make the dreams come true
But settling for change.


We gamble
Our love and life upon a lie
Unforgiving, and unknowing
Of what is right or what is fair
Believing, one more chance
Is always on its way
Waiting… for another day.
