Life As a Lottery Ticket

Scratch out every grey UV ink bubble
with a coin you pulled from the change.
Wipe the shavings away
and come to understand
that now you have no expectations.
Of winning, losing, failing or succeeding.

Tape this used ticket to your mirror
and remind yourself often
that when you get upset over a divorce,
a breakup, a weight gain or something further then your control,
it is only because you have expected differently of your life.
