leaving las vegas

“no joker, no jack, no king, can take this loser hand and make it win.”
 
this feeling entails risks.  you have to place a bet if you want to win. but if you lose more often than not, is it time to fold?
 
there aren’t enough cards in a deck to figure out the probable outcome of things, when all you have is your gut kicking you forward.
 
maybe someday you’ll understand the rules. 
 
maybe you have to get rid of that nagging feeling that the game has been rigged, in someone else’s favor.
 
maybe someday you’ll stay, even if it means you have to leave to find that place.
 
maybe you have to go somewhere you can be by yourself, just to see whether you can truly “be alone and like the company you keep”. 
 
sticking your head out a few times does not a failure make. you like him, and it’s none of his business.  you take a chance, and maybe, for now that’s enough.  there’s so much more of the world to see out there. and you’re the prizest catch i know.
 
maybe, just maybe, you really are supposed to spend the rest of your life finding that one special person, to taste that one special kiss, to experience that one special moment. 
 
maybe you have to start believing that somewhere, somehow, it will come.  when it’s the right person, the right moment.
 
the thing is, you never know until you’re there.  so start today.
