stacked deck

Play the hand you’re dealt

Because that’s part of the game

Choose your discard well

Wear your poker face

Don’t get lost in the shuffle

And don’t lose the lead

  2. I’ve always heard the phrase, “life is a game”, but this wonderful piece just shed a new light on that expression for me!

    (currently walking past my ex-boyfriend’s house with a poker face as I’m writing this comment)

    (I didn’t mean to walk by his house but I’ll play the card I’m dealt and try to not feel lost in this shuffle!)
