Poem: Life's A Gamble

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Life's A Gamble" is a short poem about life.

We take risks in life every day by takingchances on love & friendship just like a gambler.

Sometimes a lucky star shines down upon us & we toss the dice just right.

"Bruce Springsteen ~ Roll The Dice"


Life's A Gamble

A gambler knows the risk

but isn’t that really how we live each day of our life?

We take chances on love

knowing it might break our heart,

we take a chances on friendship

knowing someone might stab us in the back,

yet, we keep taking that one step forward

willing to risk it all.

But once in awhile, a lucky star

shines down upon us

and we toss the dice

just right,

finally winning.


Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.


"Kenny Rogers ~ The Gambler"
