Missed Opportunities

I made a choice, but it was too late.

I wish I could go back and have a fresh slate.

But, I know nothing lasts forever.

In a hope my dreams could come together.

It's alright, I’ll get another chance,

To take a stance.

To make a difference,

In a world of resistance.

Don't worry, I will get my day.

To shine on what I say.

God opens a window no man can shut,

So in the end I’ll get my cut.

Until then, I’ll wait here, hungry for success,

And, waiting to be blessed.

I wrote this piece in seventh grade. But, I thought it was cute, so that's why I am posting it. x)

line 9

Very sentimental...juxtoposing  hope and regret..definately mindful, and heartful. I am most certainly no expert on any one thing, and certainly not attempting to snip the intellectual golden threads from your craftsmans' loom, but line 9 could use a second look. it just struck me as the wrong chord.  great read

Yeah, been there a million times.

It's just BS coming from our own minds.

The Universe provides all the love we need.

We open up to her and everything falls into place.

I didn't start writing poetry

I didn't start writing poetry seriously until I was 19. This is very thoughtful and relevant still - we all feel under appreciated, invisible at times, and looked over - but poets have egos that scream at stars, how can mere mortals ignore us for long. Success is a mind set, not a bank balance or a promotion. As a success, you need never worry about losing what is impossible. :D ~Star~
