Spinning the Wheel of Fortune

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

Spinning the Wheel of Fortune

Spinning the Wheel of Fortune

Life is somewhat like spinning the wheel of fortune. You spin the wheel and hope it lands on the right number.

If it does not then you spin again and hope that it will be your lucky number, the number that you want.

Keep on spinning, keep on living.

Spinning the Wheel

Spinning the wheel of fortune

Wondering where it will stop

Will it stop where I want it to

And pour out all the luck


Hands on the wheel

I spin with all my might

Wondering where it will take me

Is it all worth the fight


I am spinning the wheel of fortune

With great hope and faith

Wondering where it will take me

Will it be my perfect place


Spinning the wheel of fortune

Playing the game of life

Taking a giant leap of faith

I spin with all my might


Life is always great

When you take one day at a time

Spin the wheel of life

The games have just begun.
