#Opportunities


Some hide in inner worlds,
missing opportunities for complacency and laziness ...
Some seek peace in the night's silence,
and opportunities in their calloused hands of life ...

They would manage to be what they wanted,
if courage would venture to revisit their days,
Transforming the old into new,
their potentials would appear everyday ...

Some are at the mercy of luck,
Blaming God when it does not come...
They believe that the Father of all,
Have his favourites at heart too...

If only they could realize,
how wrong  they have become,
They would avoid the bad habit,
of insults and complaints ...

The opportunities are at mercy of those,
that aren't afraid to live...
They are in the simple everyday encounters,
and in the walking hours waiting for you...

We cannot predict the morning, the noon or the evening,
No one knows what awaits us around the corner,
If death or divine light, the important thing is to never fade....

Seek the joy of everyday life,
on the positive blessing of a sunrise...
Remember what your mother said:
"Son ... I believe in you”...
So believe in yourself instead…
