One Life, One Opportunity, One Shot. - Poem by Alex David

I woke up this morning,
much to my amusement
the clouds were gone.
As if its never gonna come,
opening the way for the sun
for me, its a new day, a new beginning.

I may have lost my courage,
the strength to carry on
but things that's lost can be found
for my hope is ever eternal.
This gives me courage for me to dream,
a dream, that I'll make it real.

They say, dreams never come true
but I still have my shot,
to make things real, that's absurd
for this is all, what I have got
grandest gift, i can ever get
one life, one opportunity, one shot.

You may laugh, saying its absurd
and yes, you may be true,
for I seem weak and feeble
but its my character that counts.
A man, who never quits,
whose honour, uncompromising.
