South End Stew: Thoughts on Luck

by Robin Boland 

I carry around a silver 4 leaf clover in my wallet
Today when I came across it I thought to myself “there’s the luck that got you through this year”And then I stopped and thought “Seriously girl? You really think this year was fuckin’ LUCKY?”
So what is luck, to me – today?
It’s December 1st and it’s my last day of chemotherapy
I survived 256 days of a fight with cancer
So am I lucky or am I strong?
Lucky to be strong enough to survive
Lucky to have people to hold me up when I was weak
So, luck looks funny this year but it’s here
I can see it now
