Lady Luck

as i lay in a heap of mess
on the edge of life and death
flashes of life that i once wanted
and flashes of life that i once was
played in front of me

life that i once lived
i cannot change
life that i wanted to live
now lay in my hands

should i give in to the shadows?
should i summon the last bit of strength
that is still left inside me?
words may have deserted me
but confidence and hope is still around

lying in a heap of mess
i wonder if lady luck has deserted me?
or if she is playing hide and seek?
a dangerous game of hide and seek
a game that is my life…
