A Life With Less Success - Poem by Clinton Siegle

You ever have been down on your luck.
Ill-luck happening like a hex against you, which has been placed on you due to, I do not know?
The evil eye would say about you.
These past few years I wonder about you.

First, I lost my business, which mathematically should not have to happen
Second I lost my health, which to a part was due to the first part
Third I lost weight and part of my leg due to a recluse spider bite
Fourth I have lost my job not once but thrice within a space of a few months.

Some would say that is unlucky for you,
I say well I tried I read the Luck Factor
That will be a mantra to strive for all the risk until I succeed
So I have taken the road less traveled several times.

The last road is something unclear
Did I fail this course or was I driven here, but of course.
