Second Chances


Lying awake at night,
thoughts running through my head.

Memories returning to me,
some that make me cry,
some that make me want to hurt.

All alone, reaching out for hope,
can I have a second chance?

Only one person has ever gotten to me,
is it too late to get that happiness back?

For the first time in years,
I feel unbridled hope.

Let this be my doorway,
let it be my turn to smile again.

i think everyone wishes for second chances all the time. im wishing for mine now but mainly because my child is going to have to grow up without me. i hope she does better than i did.
