Cards of life

Cards delt out the day I was born

My hand is not lucky

Life holds the ace of spades and the joker

I only have a jack and a few 8’s

Every trick is played and yet I lost

Foolish games I have to put away

Maturity settles in and I learned

No one wins at life because life always wins

The key is to live life not to play against it

  1. This doesn’t leave room for miracles, and miracles abound everyday. Four years ago I had a very bad stroke(clots) in a very bad place the doctor’s told my family. And they pray all night while they attempted to remove the clots from my brain through a tube they ran up from my groin and here I am today a walking talking recipient of God’s grace and miracles. 🙂 ❤

  2. Wow I am happy you understood what this was about.
    It is very true this doesn’t leave room for miracles. This poem shows a person’s lack of faith. It speaks of people who believe that miracles don’t exist.

    I was watching a show and saw this one person who only believed you create your own fate. That miracles and blessings don’t exist. I was shocked how a person could not believe in God or miracles. So I wrote this poem.

    My family has gone through so much. My mother had 2 heart attacks she survived. She has a crack in her spine but by God she is able to still walk. My grandmother had two strokes and she is doing well now. So I believe in miracles and The Almighty God. It just blows my mind how some people don’t.

    But, my dear Miss, I am happy you made it and are ok. God kept you and that is a blessing. Blessings to you
