To Myself Tomorrow or Whenever I might Need it

Keep your head up
my friend
I know life can be hard,
it might seem like
the world isn’t fair,
the chips are stacked against you
and
the game is rigged
and that’s simply because
it’s exactly how it is,
you’re in a giant casino
and
the house always wins,
but that doesn’t mean
you don’t have any options.

You can put on a suit
and go to work
for the house
if you don’t care
about
how history will judge you.

You can play hard,
bet big
and hope to roll a six
or steal some chips off the table
and run like the wind,
live like you won ’em
till they catch you,

or maybe,
just maybe,
remember
once again
what it actually means
to you
to be a winner.

  1. I might just have to print this and place it somewhere I can read it everyday. Very good reminder that life is always the same game but what makes the difference is how we play it. Thanks for the good read!
