Gamble - Poem by Michael J. Burt

i'm taking a gamble,
letting you into my experiences
letting you into my deep thoughts
letting you into my heart

yes, i'm taking a gamble,
you can respect my words
but hate my message
you can smile in my face
but hate this person
it's always going to be this way
tomorrow, next week, and for the next
twenty years,

but i'm taking a gamble
you can take it for what it's worth
hate it for what it is
love it from what you've taken from it
but i'm taking a gamble,
because i love this.
