To Gamble or Not

A lecturer by profession and a poem writer at heart. I started writing since high school. Now, some of them turned into a beautiful songs.


I once said not to fall
It will only scar my heart and soul
And so I redesign my goal
Rerouting to avoid the same fate to befall

Every step is frightening
But I have to get moving
It is for my sake I keep mumbling
Love almost steal my breathing

No matter how you give everything
You might end up with nothing
No matter how you plan the best ending
Part ways are inevitable there's no saving

I'm counting years in my hands
To regain balance and confidence
Isolating myself to accomplishments
But inside me is a brawling silence

Then you came into the scene
The hazard I was not foreseen
Broke the wall and rob my patched heart
Will I move forward or go back to the start
