The Lottery Win

  • by
The Lottery Win.

She had longed to win the lottery
To buy an island
To get away
To be with her own thoughts
To become a writer.

One evening
Her lottery numbers lined up
Along the bottom of the television screen
And her heart stopped beating
For just a moment
And her hands shook
For just a moment
And she smiled

And then in her mind’s eye
she saw it
The wealth
The freedom
The island
The solitude
The loneliness

The lottery ticket
Became lost
Her gratitude became found
And she lived
Happily ever after.

  1. I really liked this poem about a dream come true and a woman able to see her whole life working out perfectly in front of her now that she finally has what she wanted. Thanks so much for sharing! ❤
