What is Luck?

How do I know when I'm lucky?

This poem was originally written for a writing challenge with a word limit of 100 words. The theme was "Luck."

What is luck?

How do I know if I’m lucky?

When I become successful,

Is that luck?

How do I know if I have it?

Is it a possession

Or a belief?

If someone else has what I want,

Is that person lucky?

When I am happy with what I have,

Am I lucky then?

What if luck isn’t what I believe it is?

What if it is not something I have,

But something I create?

What if luck is not something to be sought

Or won like a prize?

What if luck is simply gratitude in disguise?
