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!
