Serendipity

Chances are you could have been aborted

Chances are you could have ended as a miscarriage

Chances are you were stillborn

Chances are you added to infant mortality statistic

Chances are you never had an education

Chances are you never met all those people you met

Chances are you never graduated

Chances are you and your wife never met

Chances are your marriage never survived the first year

Chances are you had no children

Chances are you never had a home
Or even a country, as in the case of quite a few.

Chances are you never read a book
Never smelt a flower
Never saw an elephant in wilderness

Chances are you never climbed a mountain

Chances are you never travelled

Chances are you never made friends
In case you did
Chances are you never retained them

Chances are you never helped another
And in turn had someone help you

Your life is a cornucopia of chances
It would be a pity
If left to mere
Serendipity

So

Take control

Make things happen

Don’t hold back
Don’t hold on

Don’t linger
Don’t quit too early

Hang on
Let go

Drink
Abstain

Earn
Spend

Give more
Take less

Listen a lot
Speak little

Help all
Hurt none

Leave behind a legacy


Let the world
In your honour

Serenade a ditty !
