Luck of the Draw

At times when life seems full of shit
and you are growing tired of it,
when joy's been torn from out your soul
and left you feeling far from whole.

It's then that you, and you alone,
can find another pathway home,
forget the hand that you've been dealt
and all life's blows below the belt.

Take all the misery and pain
and change it into lifelong gain,
just like masochists all do,
laugh at those who would hurt you.

For they're not worthy of your kind,
don't ever let them bend your mind.
If only bad things pave your way,
don't let just 'luck' control your day,

The new direction you’ll then take
should bring forth laughter from heartache,
for this is how life's battle's won,
despite life's pains you’ll still have fun!
