On A Wing And A Prayer

On A Wing And A Prayer

Destiny is a crap shoot
Caution thrown to the winds
and you are a winner or loser
in the game of chance

Odds predict disappointment
of an unknown outcome 
Yet life is lived in hope
on a wing and a prayer

      Thanks so much Susi. I hope I didn’t sound too cynical in the poem 😧

    Christine, the truth told beautifully!💕
    I am seeing you respond to the daily prompts after a long time! 🙂

      Thanks Punam. It’s been sporadic I know. I respond to a lot on DVerse and then I run out of time 😕. Sometimes we gave dry spells as you know

        I know! DVerse can take a lot of time and yeah…I know about dry spells too! 🙄😏😂
        You are welcome.

        Thanks Punam. I find that D’Verse really challenges me and I like it a lot. I used to like photo prompts but I really prefer word prompts or even better, sentences!

      Nice to see you on Ragtag again, Christine. More praise here for your opening line. The hope bit is challenging.

        Thanks Tracy. Yes, I’m sorry I haven’t t been as visible on RDP lately. I’ve had a lot going on in the family and it’s taken so much of my time. I’m making a concerted effort to give myself some “me” time ☺️💕🌺

      • July 9, 2021 at 10:57 pm

        No apologies necessary, Christine. I have difficulty posting redponses to daily prompts too. Take care.

    True for many

      Thank you Sadje. It is when you think about it. Some people just seem to be more fortunate than others ☺️💕🌺

        You’re welcome! Yes, we all have our share of good and bad fortune.
