Taking A Chance

Taking A Chance short poem

Photo by Mark Strozier

You have to roll a six,
With four dices on the board.

The odds are not in your favor,
Playing a big game of chance.

Critics are saying it’s impossible,
But you still play in the tournament.

Self-discipline increases the luck,
Determination reduces the risk.

Regardless of the outcome of the game,
A dream is better pursued than left alone.

Since I was a child, I have been labeled as a failure by many people because I was a deviant and feeble-mined person. I had terrible teachers who despised by saying that I’ll work at a fast food restaurant for my entire life. People who loathed me said that I will become a bum when I evolve into an adult. Instead of executing vicious vengeance for their naive statements, I decided to perform virtuous revenge by becoming a prosperous individual; unfortunately, I had to endure rigorous adversities to achieve my objective. Presently, I am proud to say that I’m a happy person who is prospering each day.

Taking On

Taking On short poem

It was a fast against truth, in support of unbidden body which took the history lesson. A star is born out of midnight accident. Darkness deems dark in siege of self-restraint. An embattled self seeks a counting. The money speaks

Taking Strides

Taking Strides short poem

Black hidden deep within a forest A focal point leading outward Strides that repeat friction brings heat A heart filled with hope inspires the beat Atmosphere with hoofs intense Trampling over the reasons to avoid Existence stark to compare Through

Taking Flight

Taking Flight long poem

When the weight of her everyday became too much her knees buckled and she fell towards the floor. The pain became so intense it seared her from the inside out and she begged for relief. The pain swept down her

A Small Chance

A Small Chance short poem

Standing on a sand island I was looking at the landscape of the aura of a lobbied avatar. The chill was spreading on the river unfazed. The sassafras had a logistics network to penetrate in the oysters, becoming grayish white
