Gamble - Poem by Roxy Gonro

I took a gamble
The biggest gamble I will take.
And I lost.
I ended up losing my best friends,
Losing my old life,
Losing the mural I had painted of what this world was to me.
But when I looked up,
I saw the real people who stand by me through it all.
A new path with new opportunities,
And it’s not the same mural I had painted,
It’s better.

    Your words were very colorful and I like how you put your pain into each line and to each word.
    I want you to keep this up!
