Gambling

We met in a world
Where everything is a gamble.

Not Las Vegas, but online dating.

You had a daughter and family
That were part of your package

I traveled to meet you, not telling anyone what I was doing
It was too much of a gamble—I wanted to feel certain
Before I leaped.

What if we hated each other?
What if your daughter and family hated me?

I’m not much of a gambler, and I would never do that again.
It’s too hard on everyone when family is thousands of miles away
And all you want to do is to be with them.
I don’t know if gambling was a good thing.

I can’t read the other’s mind.
I wonder what he thinks?

I did all right, as confsupermanwonderwoman

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
