Luck

By definition, Luck is Chance,
And Chance is what is done.
The Preacher said that Time and Chance
Will come to everyone. (Ecclesiastes 9:11)

We cannot tell what may befall
As we go trudging through,
But when it does, it's we who say
What kind of Luck we knew.

Good Luck is just as we suppose;
Of Bad, the same is true;
However we perceive a thing
According to our view.

Though others may find blessings in
Events that we think curse,
If we don't see the good in them
Is not our lot the worse?

I don't know how God looks at Luck;
I know He's not confused.
He knows how things will come about,
Perhaps with us, amused.

There must be rules to how Luck works
Of which we're not aware.
And blessings it most surely brings,
As rain comes from the air.

For God sends rain to all below
And we see Good or Ill.
Some choose to see the damage done,
While others start to till.

Of all He sends to us in Life,
I know He means us well.
It's up to us to see in strife
The Good, though hard to tell.

For Luck is only what has passed.
We cannot see it come.
And what we choose to make of it
Should never make us glum.

It's all to make us stronger,
As each event comes by.
The "Good" to give us courage,
The "Bad" to make us try.

TRICK OR TREAT

Happy children in the street
All dressed up in mystery
Like things out of fabled lore.
Listen to their chant repeat,
Open up your hearts to see,
When they come to every door,
Each one saying, Trick or Treat.
E'en the smallest he or she,
No one should their plea ignore.

TRICK/TREAT

THIS  VERY  SCARY   NIGHT
ROAMING,  NEAR   AND  FAR
IN FRONT YARDS EVERYWHERE
CANDY SEEKERS, LIKE A SEA
KIDS  SAY, TRICK OR TREAT
