Am I Lucky

should I be grateful for this

By HufflecupPublished 14 days ago 1 min read

am I lucky or am I cursed

either way it might end in a hearse

it might be a miracle I got this far

it seems like my progress has stalled

I think I know myself

does that make me naive

maybe life is about never knowing

about enjoying getting lost in the fog

about writing your story over and over

about being lucky to be alive

if that's the case

I don't like this prize

not the struggling lungs

the aching muscles

the slowly blurring eyes

or the maladaptive dreams

at least, those are the only dreams I remember fondly

I'm supposed to be grateful for this

my loved ones may get an apology

but god won't be getting a thank you card
