The Gambler

Let the chips fall as they may,

vows of silence,

now, then, shutters,


I can play, play, play,

Let these thoughts fall away,

and I will always be

the Gambler,


Alone, cheating

the decks, the dice,

I will play, play, play,

let the chips fall as they may.


As the Gambler

I am free,

free from ruin, rushing,

endless suffering,


I can make a vow

to myself,

this will be the last game,

the last throw,


I can honour that vow

in cold morning light,

but in the night,

in the night


my vows, they fade,

always assuming the worst
