Fate Or Luck - Poem by B.J. Ayers

Just what is fate and what does it mean,
Hopes to dreams to wishes and more,
Not always good nor always bad,
It’s often only, what we wish for.

Like a maze we’re in, with no end in sight,
We often expect more, than it can share,
Especially the good, we all wish for,
It‘s never enough, we think it’s unfair,

It’s not the dream nor wish we make,
From security to love to family and more,
But rather ambition, and the goals, we set,
That guides us toward, what we strive for,

It’s often called luck, it’s often called fate,
It depends upon all, and situations we see,
The perception of life, in our on world,
And how it shares with us, that’s the kea.

    Lovely and very philosophical. Fate is a spiritual force believed to control events, whereas Luck is preparation meeting opportunity. Thanks for sharing B.J. (Report) Reply
