Spinning the Wheel of Fortune
Spinning the Wheel of Fortune | Source

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.

      It's always enjoyable and sometimes wonderful when good luck appears. As your poem describes, I would love the wheel of fortune to pour out luck to me!

      Life does have its ups and downs. That is a certainty. We cannot know what lies ahead but can keep our faith and do the best we can each day.

      If you do hit that jackpot hopefully it’s a good payout instead of something rare and unfortunate.

      Great sentiments here Nithya. Life is certainly like a wheel of fortunate, spin it every day...sometimes we win, sometimes we lose, but we need to keep on spinning and striving to succeed.
