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.
