We Will Win Sometime!

At the end of every rainbow
There is a pot of Gold
At least that is what I always heard
And what I have always been told



But rainbows are not tangible
Or something you can hold
And searching for the end of them
Has always left me cold


So we entered every contest
And we filled in every line
We even purchased Subscriptions
And other things from time to time


Lady luck don't smile on us
She does not have the time
We haven't won one red cent or one thin dime
And the way we lose you would think
That winning is a crime!

      Loved your poem Shyron. We appreciate luck so much more when it has been missing from our lives for some time.

      For some reason it won't let me share this excellent poem! Came back to let you know I voted this poem in for your niche that you told me it's in. Hope you win!

      You've given some good answers to several questions I've looked at.

      Hope all is well there. Take care dear friend. Stay cool and take care . . .

      Patricia, I don't know how I missed your comment, I thank you and appreciate you for that.

      Speaking of contest, I did win a real live snake for the Coors Brewing Company and did not even know that I had entered a contest.

      The Angels are on their way back to you with lots of Blessings and Hugs.

      Shauna, thank you so very much for the comment, I am so pleased that it gave you a chuckle and glad you won the Stones albums, I like the Beatles, but I like the Stones more, I also like Friday the 13th.

      Thank you again, Blessings and Hugs my dear friend

      I got a chuckle out of the last line, Shyron. I think the only thing I ever won was back in 1971. The local radio station had a contest and gave away all the Stones or Beatles albums each hour to whatever number caller they deemed. They alternated between the Stones and Beatles each hour. I was trying for the Beatles, but ended up winning all the Stones albums. Best part is, it was Friday the 13th!

      And like rainbows there is much, as you know, that we 'win' that is not contest related...think of all of the hearts you have won with your writing....

      More Angels are headed your way this afternoon , Shyron

      Paula, thank you, thank you, and amen LOL... I should have put that song on here, no not the one "If it weren't for bad luck", but Marvin Rainwater's - "So You Think You've Got Trouble".

      Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      Shyron.....This one rang loud & clear with me!! I always say that the old song from "Hee-Haw," is my theme song, "If I didn't have BAD luck, I'd have no luck at all!" LOL.....Love your poem!

      Flourish, thank you so very much for the comment. I like to do the scratch off and always wonder does anyone ever win big on those, I also like to play Texas Hold-em and Black Jack, but most un-lucky. The stock market is mostly strategy that is not luck.

      Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      Devika, wining does make one feel good but losing makes one feel down (discouraged) and sad.

      I hope all is well with you.

      Blessings dear friend.

      Oh, gambling can be so addictive. I usually stay away from it (although I have won $100 playing scratch offs). I prefer to play the stock market, and I'm good at it! I have a very quantitative and analytical mind and can turn emotion off when the stock market gets scary, as I see it as an opportunity.

      Ruby, Ruby my gem of a friend

      I keep on hoping that sometime I will win

      Lady Luck may appear unexpectedly or not

      And I hope it is before Father Time arrives on the spot

      And says it is my time like it or not

      But, when we come down to it I have won quite a lot

      No money, no diamonds, or pearls

      But the friendship of the Hubber guys and girls

      And one special Ruby who is a gem of a friend

      Nice one! Wining makes you feel good but when you don't win that can make you feel a drag.

      Dear Theresa of Faith, thank you for the comments. I keep thinking that I have given up but then I buy another lottery ticket and I think about all the people I help with that and then I think about all the people that have more than the prize I would win and wonder why don't they help others -- and then think maybe they do and just don't tell anybody--I wouldn't, I would just have them wondering where the help came from.

      Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      Great poem sounds as a confession anyone can relate to. As for me in order to have chance to win in this world's gaming I have to start playing. Meanwhile I have joined a small group of permanent winners following the Victorious Master.

      Hello Shyron. You present an interesting theory. Lady luck, is fickle and you capture her wispy nature well.

      Don't give up Shyron, your time will come, just wait and see

      Lady luck can be disappointing but she appears unexpectedly

      It might come as a gift or lotto play

      Or perhaps the horses on a fast track someday

      Whether it's money, diamonds or pearls

      It will happen, cos you're one of my favorite hubber girls.

      LOL

      I don't gamble at all. With my addictive personality it's best if I just stay away from it...loved the poem, and a great reminder for me.

      blessings my friend.

      Ain't it the truth, Shyron!

      I have officially given up, except last year I was tempted and went on and entered the 2016 HGTV Home giveaway ...oh, well on that one too. Hahaha

      I have won one thing in my entire life and that was a yummy chocolate cake in an elementary school Halloween carnival cakewalk way back when I was a young child.

      Your poem sums it up perfectly.

      Blessings

      Lady luck don't smile on us

      She does not have the time

      We haven't won one red cent or one thin dime...

      Love this line.. awesome poetry my friend :)

      Hey Shyron, nice poem. I feel the same way..never win anything. Always hopeful, but it never happens.
