Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

The Lottery

Posted Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Life will be better
When I win the lottery

Really?
This is the big moment you are waiting for?
A one in a ka-drillion chance
To hit the big one?
This is your solution?
Your choice?

In the meantime
You live
You wake
You eat
You work
You watch TV
You sleep

The life you wish for
That adventure
That mysterious ball of goodness
Sits waiting
While you wait
And do NOTHING
And be NO ONE—at least not the person you want to be

The life you want is available
Today
No money required
Just courage
Effort to overcome your fears

You have everything you need
Right now
Go inside
Investigate you
Take a risk
Do what you must do
Be who you must be
Today
