    For you have been through the days when life was just mocking you everyday.

    It played tricks, each time a different one, some days it was a girl that you met across the street and some days it was money visiting you in your dreams.

    Gambling wasn't your game until you saw your child bunking school and selling those dreams wrapped in those books to someone else, just because he was worried about you and wanted to help you in your work.

    That night you had twenty six dollars in your pocket when you put ten of them on that middle card, thinking what if I lose.

    Those ten dollars and ten seconds were priceless for you. You could listen your heart beats playing a rap song.

    Finally it was a King, a card that you chose. You won that damn game and the money, hundred dollars.

    You ran towards your home, with that money in your hand, you didn't even put them in to your pockets. Because it was the first time your hand touched a hundred dollar note.

    "Harry, look what I have today. I won this in the gambling, I think I am not that unlucky."

    "Did you say gamble?"

    "Yeah, why?"

    "Dad, I am really happy that you won today but don't you know that luck is a tricky bastard, it can leave your door any time."

    "You can say all you want, but this is the first time I've hundred dollars in my hand."
