Just roll

It spins

Like a roulette wheel

Like a compass seeking North

Like a random

Chopping knife

Dicing close across the board

Move your fingers

Slide surreptitiously deep

Hide them in pockets

Where the mind cannot reach

And know

Whatever comes

You’ll be fine

You’ll be fine

It’s just life

It slides this way and that

But you can withdraw


And don’t get caught up

It’s your mind that’s magnetically attracted

To the rolling sound of dice

Gamblers all

We like to think we have some control – it’s a nice thought

But really?




*and it’s a waste of time and energy to lay your bets or hedge chances – time is better spent building resilience and that comes from being okay

No matter and come what may
