Gambling Myself Away

Trusting Someone who is untrustworthy

is a gamble

where the victor has reputation kindled

and the loser lives with a friendship

lost in a storm of words and deeds.

 

Boldly telling truth about a liar

is a gamble of words

where the victor becomes the

hunter of innocence

and the loser loses the power of speech.

 

Loving someone who is unlovable

is a gamble of soul, mind, body, and heart

where the victor takes all 

and the loser loses everything.
