Second Chance - Poem by Richard Lam

Don't let the clowns keep you down.
Don't let Negativity make you frown.
When they sing aloud, 'You're done! You've wasted that one chance! '
You have to make them understand.
They don't know they're wrong.
That's why you got to prove you are strong.

You're past making those lousy choices.
You're past listening to those bad voices.
What is now.
You do know how.
What is ahead.
No need to dread.
At the end of these corridors of sorrows,
Awaits a new door of tomorrow.

You have your boat and your oar,
Row away and clear
Trees and rocks and many more.
They can't make you fear.

So really,
Don't let the clowns take away
For a minute,
For a day,
Even if it's just a ray.
