Destiny - Poem by Laura Strom

i wish i knew what mine was. then i wouldn't be
here. i wouldn't have allowed death to win me
over. i would have given myself a chance. i gave
up all too quickly to the circumstances of the
present. i wish i had another chance at lyfe.
another chance to prove myself. i could have been
a legend-remembered in history. but never can this
be. because i gave up on me.
