GOD WILLING, SHE SAID.

I know that I'm a lucky man;
it seems apparent every day.
But I am one among a host
whose luck evolved another way.
Such unwonted suffering
is not the grist that gods allot,
so how shall I be happy here
amid all those I know are not?

Thank you M.C., thank you Daniel. My mother has a friend who has a difficult life and i heard the young woman utter the words 'god willing' in relation to her ongoing problems. It's hard to be complacent in the face of others' struggles, and it leads me to examine my own happiness.

The ability to be profound in a few lines is a
gift given to few. These lines are brief yet
pose a conundrum that lingers in the mind.
