The Wheel Of Mis/fortune


The Wheel Of Mis/fortune

There is the superstition
that if you speak
of the fortunate,
misfortunate will follow.

But the reality is that
fortune and misfortune
do alternate in life –
even if you speak of neither.

In worldly life,
after good karma bears fruit,
bad karma bears fruit,
and the cycle repeats…

After sunshine comes rain.
After rain comes sunshine.
After sunshine comes rain.
After rain comes sunshine…

The point is to do
what you can
to learn from misfortune,
to better your fortune.

This surely expedites
the alternating
of your misfortune
to be good fortune.
