I travelled to that “other world”
    By some strange magic source
    Transported in a stupor,
    Of sheer magnetic force.
    I didn’t wait to question,
    To ask whither, when or why,
    Gave consent without attempting
    The consequences to deny!

    I don’t remember going-
    I blocked that journey out
    By using every tactic
    To suppress my rational doubt.
    Although my mind was screaming
    “Turn back ! You have a choice!”
    But addiction leads to dreaming
    So I just ignored that voice.

    I thought about my future
    My promises and plans
    To be frugal free and truthful
    Living Life in God’s safe Hands!
    It was clear before I started
    What the outcome soon would be,
    And I heard the Voice of Reason
    “What will YOU do differently?”

    A gambler’s prayer for miracles,
    For favours and for wins,
    Soon transforms into mockery
    Reflected in the “spins”
    Seventy, eighty, ninety
    Before we see Three Bars,
    Maybe God is laughing now,
    Scolding from the stars!

    Gambling is my First Love
    When I fail to take control
    And even though I have a choice
    It takes my heart and soul,
    But only when I give consent
    To set this” monster”free
    From the cage where he lies sleeping,
    It is I who hold the key!
