Make The Best Of It

The best things in life

Often happen by chance

Whether by accident

Or contrary to best laid plans


Penicillin, the microwave

Play-Doh, superglue and LSD

Pacemakers, post-it notes

And, according to my parents, even me


So make plans if you need

For holidays or wedding speeches

But don’t miss the lesson

That these chance events can teach us


Mistakes aren’t always bad

Mishaps, at times, are good

They may help us unlock doors

We otherwise never would


So remember the next time

That things don’t go to plan

Don’t just sit and sulk

Make the best of it you can
