Life deals the cards and with them,
I try and do the best I can.
Sometimes I have a winner,
sometimes it's how I play the hand.

I try to keep the good cards
and toss the bad ones to the side,
then hope I get more good ones
out of the deck wherein they hide.

Some days it really seems,
that there's no way for me to win,
I find it's best to say I quite today,
tomorrow I'll try again.

But no matter, I must keep playing,
trying harder every day,
and some how it seems to even out,
just deal the cards, I'm ready to play...
