Good Fortune

A cynical person

may say you get

what you deserve

but that is a lazy

viewpoint to observe.

A person is not

just a statistic

and to imply

that view is far

too simplistic.

Everyone has the

right to be heard

not just the ones

who think they have

the final word.

Self-importance is not

a pleasant trait

and is not something

an honest mind

would advocate.

Every person should

be judged on

their own merit

and not by some

good fortune that

they may inherit.

  1. I’m cynical lol, but definitely don’t believe people get what they deserve. Some great people get a really raw deal and some horrible people get a nice hand, so doesn’t seem like fairness to me.
