May the odds ever be in your favour


The catachresis of a statement
Made famous by the Girl
Who did beat the odds
However engineered it was
Designed to obliterate
But then, the odds
Were in her favour.

Over and over again.

As it probably could be
For me?

Should I choose
In the face of
Well-meaning, scaffolded

But will it?
Will I let it?
The odds are strange things.
Always surprising
Obliging even.

So much so, you believe
It could be.

And the soul then hungers.
In the games it plays, to get it.

And so it plays out.

Till you realize.

The odds. Odd.
Could they ever
Be in your favour?

And then you live

That paradox.

  1. The odds will always favor
    Those with the most fervor
    Tho’ i hasten to add
    They abhor the sad
    And will reward cheerful endeavor!

  2. Hmmm not very sure about this when I put the statement against the context of ME..

    But nevertheless I do wish and pray thay may the odds always be in everyone’s favour. .

  3. Hi Usha! Looong time! How are you?
    Wondering what’s happening…


  4. Even it becomes, when you add one to any odd
    Take heart and take a path no one has ever trod
    Haven’t you heard of the peas that left the pod
    ‘No growth there’ they said and the gods had to stand up and applaud.
