Another Chance - Poem by Elise Johnson

A chance to start over
a way to make new
To cast away the old beliefs and start fresh
The old life is over and the new one begins
Been here before and now again
this could flourish or wilt and die
Better take the chance
jump without knowing if the rope is attached
The chance to live the alternate life
Do you want to...

    yes i do want to...always...new paths...the untrodden ones are the best...explore little girl but be prepared to gracefully accept the concequences...they teach great lessons...to err is human...and to rise from it needs a strong heart and mind...have fun with life...love...nalini (Report) Reply

    It shows that you are somehow a revolutionary or radicalism teenagers, as what I am some years ago. (Report) Reply

    I would like to shed my deep feeling on imagery you used here
