2017, Poetry, Reading

Opportunties Lost

It was there;

Shining bright,

Beckoning me to it.

The only thing I had to do

Was reach out,

But I blew it.


I hid myself

Behind my Faith,

My family, my work.

And so it dimmed

And grew so cold,

And leaked into the earth.


I reach out now

To touch the void,

Why didn’t I before?

But it’s too late;

My chance is gone.

It’s not there anymore.
