I write what I feel…

Tossing the Coin



“Heads, I win – Tails, you lose,”
No need for a double-sided coin,
The outcome is assured.
Life can be a wager,
Death to the loser ~~
The highest stake of all.


Life can be a gamble,
A game of chance,
And you can only play it once ~~
Here and now is what counts.
Tomorrow is a question mark
Invisible behind a mask.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. This is a great poem on life and death…


  2. true…that coin flip is like the decisions we make as well..and each one determines where we will get to….


  3. “Tomorrow is a question mark
    Invisible behind a mask.”

    And is that a muffled chuckle I hear?


  4. We never know what’s in store. Love your thoughts on this, adee. 🙂
