Poetry by Jamie McKenzie

Nailing it

Sometimes you get what you deserve
Sometime you donít
But come what may
Destiny does not lie waiting
For you
It is forged
Is a matter of your own doing
Your obstinate
Persistent
Effort
Your faith
And your sense of justice

You do what must be done
And Lady Luck be damned
She is fickle
Unreliable
And not worth waiting for
And the doing is what matters
Not the reward
The payoff
Or the jackpot

You do what must be done
As you see it
You seize the tiller
The hammer
And each day
Pointing into the wind
Nailing what needs nailing
Getting on with life
Making good things happen
