Easy child easy, don’t bite off more than you can chew

Would you have gambled your heart even if you knew

That you will lose that hand to destiny’s plan

And you will lose everything else trying to win it again

It’s a gamble of love, lives and souls are at stake here

And destiny is a crafty and ruthless gambler, my dear

With every hand that you lose in this game, you bleed your heart

After a while, you have bled too much to make another fresh start

Listen to me child, spend your heart and soul ever so wisely from here

It is the only currency accepted in this gamble and absolute depletion is near

Don’t lose it all in numerous simple pursuits only to stand by and watch with rue

As destiny deals you a winning hand but you have nothing more left to lose
