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.

Taking chances on love & friendship just like a gambler.

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

Life's A Gamble

A gambler knows he must take a risk

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


We take a chance on love

knowing it might break our heart,

we take a chance on friendship

knowing we might get stabbed in the back,

yet, we still take one step forward

risking it all.


Once in awhile, a lucky star

shines down upon us

and we toss the dice

just right.

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