Blind

I used to judge them from afar
Gamblers. Sinners. A rebellious lot.
All of them.
Spending nickle and dime and more
One machine after the next

Smoke-filled rooms
Poker tables
A roll of the dice
A pull of the slot machine
I was so better than them

But then, through a walk
Down the casino halls
I looked closer
To not see rebellion at all

Long sighs
Sad faces
Teary-eyed
Desperate paces

Searching for hope
Because they found none
Elsewhere
Trusting in the machine
Because no one really cares
That life isn’t fair

The Judgement fell upon me
Because I failed to see
A bolt of lightning won’t heal a hurt
Only love can
