    It’s not about the money
    It’s about forgetting
    Imagining a different reality
    one in which WE ALWAYS WIN
    A contented, organised, secure life with the notion of being IN CONTROL

    It’s not about the winning
    It’s about the losing really
    When we have nothing left our pockets match the emptiness in our hearts
    Then we snap awake from the walking dream to find ourselves stranded yet back to square one
    Square one is familiar territory
    We know,, what to do here.
    We breathe, we cry, we dream of doing better some day soon. Next time.

    As if gambling isn’t punishment enough
    I have a plan. Plan B for the plan B
    Working towards ascendance

    There would be very little misery
    Hello victim mode, introducing moi

    Readers you indulge me terribly and I thank you for it, truly x
