All In – Reasons why I bet it all

“The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.” Albert Einstein

 You mock me when I place my whole being on a relationship you believe is a total loss. Let me tell you why I place all my chips on this roll of the dice…
I see the beauty overlooked by hasty and careless lovers

I see the hope in her intelligence, which she hid because she was told to be seen and not heard

I see the potential in her crazy wild rebellion, it chases the common fools away

I see the wonder in mischievous eyes, her wildness never tamed

I see the strength born from the violent men she has endured and survived

I see the determination to never give up, though the world laughs at her struggle

I see the passion that only a woman of character and spiritual vitality can bring

I see the scars that others gave her, trying to mar the beauty she wouldn’t give

I see the ravages that nature gave trying to lash her to the grave

I see the marvel of a woman, a companion, and a warrior by my side.

A woman, pure and undefiled, strong and wise, passionate and tender deserving of my gamble for the privilege to stand by her.

The Hand Dealt

“The less you bet, the more you lose when you win.” Bob Nastanovich 

Let’s suppose for a moment, that my life’s a poker game.

I’ve been dealt my hand, but there still remains a draw…
I often stop with the hand I’ve been dealt, ignoring
the fact that the draw could turn those cards into a winning hand. At times it’s not the cards that win, it’s the betting of the chips that changes the outcome of the game. So now I wonder, have I bet foolishly with the chips of time I’ve been given? I’ll take my cards and know this, whether with the the draw or the bet, I can win this.
