I Keep Taking That Gamble - It Better Be Worth Taking

Heavens, if I'm afraid to take that gamble and love someone - how can I expect or ask someone to gamble on loving me. And, believe me I want to be loved  - and I do want TO love.

What can I say. Things haven't always gone right. Well, to be more honest - I have not always done right and I messed up a few lives - including my own. But I can't blame gambling on love - but gambling on a different hand when I already had the winning hand.

And I am gambling again. Right now, the hand I'm holding is not a winning hand; it is a comfortable hand and I see a potential winning hand coming into play. I'll take that gamble. It certainly feels good, better than comfortable.

I agree, there is just as good a chance that something may go right! :-)

Yes, life is a crap-shoot. There is always the chance that something will go wrong. Flat tire -> car wreck -> somebody becomes a vegatable. But there is always the chance that something will not go wrong. True love that lasts ~> and lasts ~> and lasts.<br />

Ya pays yer money and ya take yer chances.

I personally think life is a crap-shoot. You never know what you're going to get from one day to the next. All we can do is take it a day at a time - enjoy the good and try to deal with the bad. There really is no security or stability - those are ideas we like to place in our minds to make the journey seem less frightening. It's all one big rollercoaster ride. :-)
