Some People Are Just Lucky

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

What, if anything, in a tomorrow wished,
Is guaranteed?
If the ability to experience the 'now' today,
Is an activity done that can be achieved.
Besides procrastination?
And many daily do that AND succeed.

Too often it is heard by some,
What they can not do...
Because there is no time to find.
Or funds to wine and dine themselves!
As if in a 'tomorrow'...
A lottery win will come to change their minds.

However,
Explain this to me...
What, if anything, in a tomorrow wished,
Is guaranteed?
If the ability to experience the 'now' today,
Is an activity done that can be achieved.
Besides procrastination?
And many daily do that AND succeed.

And why do those who seem to be in sacrificial mode,
Are always considered the ones who are lucky...
When working hard all their lives,
Creating their own opportunities.

'I never see those folks out socializing anywhere.
And they always look tired and haggard! '

~I wonder why? ~

'Maybe they stay home laying on the couch.
Watching too much TV? '

~That's what I do.
I don't look like that.
In fact, the doctor told me I was getting fat.
And I know I keep active.~

'Yeah,
Some people are just lucky.'
