This a poem based on current events in my life.Its my first post on a poetry site alot of my poems i tend to write down so any feed back would be appreciated.

Its a horrible life when its a life based on chance
You dont create time for friends or romance
The money you wasted you try to forget
And your thoughts for the future are just thoughts of a bet

One moment your up and next the one your down
You lose everything and your just left with this frown
But one stupid thing is you always go back
Because you heard from a friend theres this dog on this track

The sadness you suffer and the money you burn
You keep telling yourself but still never learn
It never works out how you want it to be
Incase you've noticed im a gambler me

We live for a moment where we can shout out and sing
I knew i was right i told you i'd win
You walk out the door with your smile and your cash
Go back the next day and its gone in a flash

The worst thing of all its stress you dont need
But once given a taste what compels us is greed
Its as exciting as sex and as addictive as drugs
But let me say now that gamblings for mugs
