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

nonetheless.
