Give me...Give me one more Second Shot...

And I'll promise you this time...I'll give it all I got !

Just one more...simple opportunity...

I'll give it everything I got...and all that I have in me.

Please...I am asking...you can't go wrong...giving me a chance...

The party may look like it's all over...but I just started to dance !

Maybe...too many times I acted with a quiescent heart and pondered...

Maybe...too many times I was given a chance before...that I squandered.

But this time...when I stand alone...to line up for the critical shot...

I won't go away "empty-handed"...I've learned from previous lessons that were "well-taught".

The Second Shot that I get...when I step up to the plate...

Will make up for all the times...I had to stand by and wait.

With "un-nerving" inner-confidence and much fervent determination...

My "Second Shot" Chance will bring forth a final and definite resolution.

This time...for the chance worth taking...I'll put it all on the line...

There'll be no backing down from the upward call for the prize...on this time !

Just One More Chance....a "Second Shot"...is all I'm pleading...

'Cause this Time...One More Shot at it...is All in the World...that I'm Needing !

May You Have Strength And Good Fortune When You Line-up To Take The "Second Shot" !

This Poem is Dedicated to All Those who get a "Second Shot" in Life...And Make the Most of It !
