Fortune

by joetwo

Luck is on my side,

The unfathomable vagaries of fortune have smiled upon me.

Chance has thrown me a good turn

and I have been quick enough to seize the opportunity.

For it is the wisdom to take on luck,

To tackle head on the universe when the augers are good,

To follow the signs of fate and take what the gods have provided.

That is the key,

The route for true success.

Fortune favours the bold,

For only the bold act when fortune provides her favour.
