Take A Chance - Poem by Edwina Reizer

You take a chance and try your best
and hope things turn out right.
But the outcome from the chance you take
is not within your sight.
Do you refrain from trying
and sit still dying
because you're afraid of failure?
This has become the bane of many
and dreams are left behind.
Life itself, is a chance you know
and never will you find
anyone that knows their future.
It's as if we all are blind.

Take a chance, Give it all you've got.
Get up every day and try.
If and when you reach old age
you won't have to sit and sigh.
'If only I had taken a chance,
If only I had tried
maybe that dream from long ago
would never have died.'
