Still Unbroken

I was listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd on Spotify while exercising yesterday, and one of the songs seemed to be written just for my recent running bad streak.  To be clear, the main contributor to running bad is playing poorly.  The cards aren’t helping, but I own the decisions.

A good definition of running bad would be “getting bad cards and playing them poorly.”  Yet I’m still alive.

Broken bones, broken hearts
Stripped down and torn apart
A little bit of rust
I’m still runnin’
Counting miles, counting tears
Twist of roads, shifting gears
Year after year
It’s all or nothing
But I’m not home
I’m not lost
Still holding on to what I got
Ain’t much left
Though there’s so much that’s been stolen
Guess I’ve lost everything I’ve had
But I’m not dead, at least not yet
Still alone, still alive, still unbroken
I’m still alone, still alive, I’m still unbroken
Never captured, never tamed
Wild horses on the plains
You can call me lost, I call it freedom
I feel a spirit in my soul
It’s something Lord I can’t control
I’m never giving up while I’m still breathing
I’m not home
I’m not lost
Still holding on to what I got
Ain’t much left
Though there’s so much that’s been stolen
Guess I’ve lost everything I’ve had
I’m not dead, at least not yet
Still alone, still alive, still unbroken
I’m still alone, still alive, I’m still unbroken
I’m still unbroken
Still unbroken
Like the wind, like the rain
Keeps on running through my veins
Like a river pouring down into the ocean
I’m out here on the street
But I’m standing on my feet
Still alive, still alone, still unbroken
I’m not home
I’m not lost
Still holding on to what I got
Ain’t much left
Though there’s so much that’s been stolen
Guess I’ve lost everything I’ve had
But I’m not dead, at least not yet
Still alive, still alone, still unbroken
I’m still alone, still alive, I’m still unbroken
I’m still alone, still alive, I’m still unbroken
I’m still unbroken
I ain’t never going down
I’m still unbroken
Oh

And why do they end a song with “Oh”?

Oh, and after I finished this post but before publishing, I played a few hand online at the micro stakes.  And this happened. The villain in Seat 9 limped and called my pre-flop raise and flop C-bet, then check-raised all-in on the turn.  Does it ever seem like they always get there?

But I’m not dead, at least not yet…
