Lucky You

                              Lucky You

Do you believe in luck?, The answer is 'No'. Everyone
tells us "good luck" or "bad luck" the truth being we
all make our luck, it depends on chance or coincidence
that luck appears, if we gamble we usually have a 50%
chance of succeeding depending on the odds against us.
Many people have accidents and become hurt, the luck 
 then depends on whether we were careless or cautious.
Luck has nothing to do with it, it is just an excuse we all
accept as either good luck or bad luck, luck plays no
real decision in our life, it is a choice we all make the 
right and the wrong choice, this is determined by us.
 the flip of a coin, two different directions in our life
they are called cross-roads and we all must face 
them consistently, the fancy name for these decisions 
is called Luck, so if you ever hear good luck it means 
you have made the right decision and not good luck.

    from a Christian point of view, it does seem you are right! how can luck play in the gospel of Jesus Christ? or his disciples. . . were there luck involved? A very profound and serious point. . . . if only i can play the charm. . . .

    Sometimes Danesh my inspiration even amazes me, I was trying to draw a parallel between Luck and Choce, the odds are 50% each way so the odds seem even to have bad luck or not to have it, Law of Averages, I suppose. you are an amazing critic and you are up to the task of besting me in many cases, congrats to you, thank you for your comments dear friend, until next time we meet.

    Thank You Peter, I have to have critics, it is what poetry is all about, but luck is based on chance and coincidence, It is like magic it is not real it is an illusion, the magician trys to make you believe this, luck is just the same, people call it luck but you still have to make the decision for it to work. I am glad you enjoyed this. John
