Luck of The Draw



Luck of The Draw

I've spent my time
In worlds of wonder
Traveling to
The other side
Learning – why?
There is no reason
It is just how
It's supposed to be.

Many stories
I could tell you
Of places far
Far from this land
Still no one knows
Or has an answer
To: what is life?
Why do we live?

People I
Have met out yonder
They try to live
Like you and me
Each day's a gift
Of some eternal
Our journey is
Unique, do you see?

There are some
Who are the masters
Others live to
The servant's call
There is no shame
In being either
It's just a job
Luck of the draw.
