You Just One Lucky Dude
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Pain and sorrow.
Loneliness and isolation.
Holding on to have a dream,
Realized as wished.
With no guarantee of its final appearance,
Is what it takes with commitment to succeed.
'I understand what others may have done.
But what formula did you use,
To make your success achieved...
I sat back and procrastinated.
And did nothing everyday,
But bragged about what I would do...
IF I had the opportunity.
'I knew it.
That's what I've been telling everybody.
You aint better than nobody else.
Except you just one lucky dude.'
