I am Steve Lucky. Welcome to my website, Edge Of The Coin. This website contains a variety of stories and poems ranging from early childhood to the present day. At the current time, I am transfering my website from Geocities to Tripod so it will take some time to get everything together and make sure all this links are working properly. Priority goes to my stories and poems.

I had a radio interview which aired Saturday, May 3, 2008. Radio Interview



This was my 500th poem. The title of the poem is also the current title of my website.

EDGE OF THE COIN By ... Steve Lucky People have a tendency to divide other people Into various categories and subcategories Based on all kind of things. Male and female, black and white, child and adult, rich and poor All need to be able to see life from the edge of the coin. Not all things can be neatly placed Into one category or the other. Hermathrodites, children of mixed race, teenagers, and the middle class Remind people that even the best classifications of people Have a tendency to break down When seen from the edge of the coin. One needs to take a look at who people are instead of what they are. Individuals, not categories, is what makes up the human race. How can anyone even pretend to judge By standards they do not live up to themselves? Whatever else we are, we are all filled with human frailties. To improve life for the individual and for the world, Everyone and every view point Needs to be taken into consideration. This includes the unpopular ways of doing things. Sometime those ways actually turn out to be right. As a whole, the coin is valuable. Heads and tails come together In a way too complex for even the smartest person to comprehend. Could the coin exist without heads, without tails, Or without an edge to hold them together? Looking carefully to see whether a coin has landed heads or tails Might make one forget the coin also has an edge. From that vantage point, heads and tails are alike yet different. Male or female, black or white, rich or poor, child or adult Everyone has a human edge. Lord, help all people, great and small To see things from the edge of the coin. Judgement comes from what is done to the soul Not from the exterior factors surrounding it. Fighting is done far too often And done for the most trivial of reasons. Help all to remember, Whether one is classfied heads, tails, or even an edge. It takes all of us to make the coin a vaulable whole. Copyright 2007, Steve Lucky
