Royal Flush 

We wake up 
one day 
not who 
we want to be 
or where 
we thought 
we would be 
while we planned 
and dreamed 
we didn’t act. 
Or maybe 
we did all 3 
but luck 
missed us 
by a hair. 
Something else 
got in 
the way 
and we 
let it. 
the reason, 
that’s life’s 
plot twist. 
You had to 
that while 
you were sitting 
on a straight flush, 
Life had 
a royal flush 
tucked up 
its sleeve.
