The Great Gamble

Formative in scarcity

and birth on lies and torture.

A stolen power

and a given life

and a lost future,

will the next generation

succeed?

Is it all and always

been the great

gamble.

Yes, it is true all

our efforts in our

ends of youth

are but a sorrowed

addicting

gamble.
