Bet Me On

Bet Me On

A Poem by CircusNerd

You made your stakes

And I'm your bet

Can I handle what you've signed up for?

Roll your dice

Put me to the test

Have I got a choice to win or not?

 

Cause deep down you know that

Despite all your lies

I'll never back down and

I'll go on try

 

Because  I can have everything

Everything I've wanted

If I win

And I'll lose everything

All that I have

If I give in

And crumble to the ground

And give you nothing

But I'll fight on

And on

For what could happen

 

If I win.

 

I'm a special pawn to you

I've got talents no one does

But will that be enough to win me freedom?

I can see the end point

It's a light up above

Can I make it to the top and make it down

 

And I know there's a chance

That you could be wrong

But if I win it all

Might you just bet me on

 

Because  I can have everything

Everything I've wanted

If I win

And I'll lose everything

All that I have

If I give in

And crumble to the ground

And give you nothing

But I'll fight on

And on

For what could happen

 

Should I win.

 

So just keep raising the stakes

And if I have what it takes

You'll be able to tell just from what I gain

And when I bring you the prize

Whatever sparks your sight

Let me have the one thing I want again

 

Let me have the one thing I've wanted forever

So bet me on.

Author's Note

CircusNerd
I placed a bet with my father, which could possibly end in the total destruction of anything an overly ambitious 16 year old holds valuable, or could gain me access to pursue several other time-consuming, non-education -but pro-college application- activities if I can manage both them and score amazing grades.

This was intense. It would make an amazing song.
The metaphor was brilliant.
