my journey with luck

My zodiac sign matches with many millionaires,
But I don't possess the same amount of wealth.
My date of birth is same as many athletes and players,
But I don't have similar health.

 I rearranged my house according to fengshui on advice of my neighbour.
 I wore many gemstones but it also proved to be fruitless labour.

 I had fasts as my astrologer said it will end all my financial troubles.
 But in addition I got health problems so my trouble became double.

 I have always been very cautious about good or bad omens.
 I worship many imaginary gods to be safe from many imaginary demons.

 I also talked to talking parrots and glanced through magic crystals.
 I went to forged pundits on footpath to reach higher pedestals.

 I also searched the key to happiness through a set of tarot cards.
 I performed various rituals to satisfy my ancestors sleeping in graveyard.

 I visited many palmists to know what is wrong with lines of my palm.
 I changed the spellings of my name to save myself from any kind of harm.

 But one day I got fed up and decided to just concentrate on my work.
 From that day till today I have never been lazy and never ever shirked.

 I changed my habits and changed my way of living.
 I started loving my life and started respecting small things.

 Now I don't think that anything in my life is tragic.
 Now there is no uncertainty as I have become strategic.

 Now my life is no longer uncertain or tricky.
 As I am no longer lucky or unlucky.
