Fortune Cookie Fortune (FF 66)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



I cracked that fortune cookie, read it
It told me take the chance now pessimism dead it
The golden ticket surely won’t ever be hand delivered
I’ll manage to get a sliver of success if I stay driven
If I compromise intentions in the name of fame and riches
I’m a sucka, but that ain’t how I’m livin
The world can be a prison or a prism
The lens that we’re viewing our reality through can make a difference
I surely thought I wouldn’t be in my current position
But life has funny way of showing us our mission
We can blow it off, call it coincidental
Nah into that good night I will not go gentle
keep it so simple in this world of complexities
open up my ears to the people that’s next to me
strive to be the best that I can be while staying grounded
& hope to leave this world a better place than how I found it
