Nobody asked life to deal us with these bull ____ hands we're dealt we gotta take these cards and flip 'em don't expect no help- Eminem

They offered me
A hundred dollar bill
I refused it
My hands too

I didn't know
What exactly it
Was at first
So I looked

Opening my fist
There lay a
Crumpled, dirty, sweaty
Old dollar bill

I was inspired to write this after passing up a really great opportunity because I was clinging too tightly to someone in my past.
