Rags to Riches

It’s a long road from rags to riches

when fame and fortune hides in the shadows.

Keeping track of the play we call life

has its ups and downs,

 roundabouts that spin you out of control.

When you’re up, life falls into place

with the ease of a hot knife through butter.

When it’s down, it’s a bad spin on the roulette wheel.

There has to be a bridge between the two.

Finding it is the trick

When you do, should you keep it to yourself?
