#MLMM Wordle #258 #Poetry

Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie

I am of a mind that some people accrue poverty
as others do riches
I confine my attention to the fox scavenging for food
Looking for a daily meal
My mood drops far down into the earth
Among the tree roots in pools of dark water
Recent events have left me living in the shadows
The extreme path we take in life
has something missing
People say we make our own luck
I disagree. Hard work isn’t always enough
Some of us need help from the cosmos…
