Bargaining My Life

Bargaining My Life

A Poem by ~L.A.

I've shown my hand,
and my hand was a bust. 
But cruel fate, 
had the upper hand. 
I bet my life, 
thinking I could win,
now I'm pleading with fate,
to let me leave with my life.
But a bet's a bet,
and it looks like, 
I'm not leaving here alive. 
The stakes were rigged, 
there's no way I could have possibly,
made a mistake this large. 
I can't control the cards, 
that fate holds in its hands. 
I can't control the cards,
in my hands either. 
For the cards in my hand,
were placed there,
by the cruelest fate ever imaginable. 
I gambled my life.
That was the night,
that my life was on the line.
And I lost, 
so now I'm at,
every beck and call of fate's 
cruel desires.
