poetry by j matthew waters

blessed are the lucky ones


when someone says they make
their own luck
I can only imagine how blatantly
foolish they must be
believing having control
of their own destiny
is actually possible by someone
other than the gods

for free spirits such as these
I hope they never
ever know
it’s just a matter of time
before they come to realize
luck has nothing to do
with their lot in life
nor their untimely demise

  1. An excellent poetic truism (myth-buster even). Well done.

  2. No it has little to do with luck… *hugs*
