What is Misfortune?


Misfortune is…
A goal unaccomplished,
A challenge unmet,
A dream never realized.
Misfortune is disappointment.

Misfortune is…
A mother never there,
A father never known,
A love never found.
Misfortune is heartbreak.

Misfortune is…
A child abandoned,
An animal unloved,
A family hungry.
Misfortune is despair.

Misfortune is…
A country divided,
A nation torn,
A world in pieces.
Misfortune is history.

    Very very good poem. Misfortune is when I hope or desire something. No desire no misfortune. There is peace with me always. Congratulation poet.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
