Better luck next time


To the wily wind that threatened to lift me and sway me away,

I say, “Better luck next time.”

To the torrid sea that swelled & frothed to cast me adrift,

I say, “Better luck next time.”

To the arid breeze that parched my very essence,

I say, “Better luck next time.”

To the all the people who held me back, did not believe,

I say, “Better luck next time.”


For I believe that my next time is mine alone to write.

My next time is not a matter of luck or fate.

My next time is a matter of my belief in myself.

So to all saying, “Better luck next time.”

I say, “Yes! Better luck to you next time.”

For I shall create my own luck.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
