stay or walk away


  • Lost Love

    stay or walk away

    It matters not why or how.
    We have arrived where we are now.
    Do we go on and bet we'll win
    or cast aside what might have been.
    Do we say I failed you and you failed me,
    blame each other for what comes to be,
    or do we work to a better tomorrow
    and cast aside past hurt and sorrow.
    We have a choice that must be made
    and we can agree the debts are paid;
    make our bet and play to win
    or tell the dealer to cash us in.
    We've got four cards and the hand may bust
    but there's four to the straght and four to the flush.
    An ace will do it or even a nine
    and another heart will fill the hand just fine
    I state my choice to play the hand
    turn the card and see it land.
    Win or lose, I'll feel we've won
    because we didn't quit, fold and run.
    But if you think it's time to fold,
    then this hand, can't turn to gold.
    We'll count the chips that we put away
    and wonder always what card would play.
    I like the odds and I'd take the shot
    but half the price is all I've got.
    It's you, partner, that must decide we stay
    or we take the loss and walk away.

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
