A Second Chance...

Life is a one-way street, once you enter, you can never return. But, however, you can learn from that one street when you came to a crossroad again. Well, maybe not for me. I'm lost, already lost in a maze of mistakes and wrong choices...

and that's all because of L-O-V-E.

Hope I could find you in another place and time... Proven its true, I'm still in love with you.


If only I will be given a chance to rewrite my life and erase some portion of my memories, I would choose carefully the things that I only want to be part of my world.

I would personally hand-picked the friends who would betray me less and I would not ever take for granted the things that I know I will regret when gone.

And most of all, I would like to give chance to myself to go through all the things that a person would love to experience.

I will choose the man who will be proud to say, "Mom, Dad, this is my girlfriend" or will not be ashamed to say "I love you" to me in front of his friends.

Maybe a man who would ran after me whenever I turn my back on him or a man who will choose me instead of his pride when you have misunderstandings; a man who would take a little of his time to asked me once in a while if I’m okay.

And a man who would not ever, ever cheat or betray me in front of my face.


Sounds like perfect.

But you know what, after writing those 'should have beens', I came to realized that even if I could find a man like that, and even if he exists in my world, I would still choose the man I have now.

I don't know, even with these pains I suffered from this love of mine to him, I just can’t let him go. Maybe because I know from the bottom of my heart that he is the only one I will love, from the start of my life until the day that I die.

I'm happy when I see him and when we're together. Maybe when you truly love someone, you’re ready to fight for him, no matter what the odds.

He's living in another world, in another dimension of time. We're not supposed to see each other, but we've met in a twist of fate.

I never got to hold him in my arms; we just see each other thru this mirror blocking the two dimensions. The pain sucks, it's like you've fell down on a 100th story building but you're still alive.

Maybe I'm just a hidden piece of treasure or a decoration in his world but I don't care, important thing is, we're together.

For me, he's already more than perfect.

Unknown, you need to become Known! I get what you say here. It's about dreams and not compromising yourself. And never, ever let go of what you've laid out for your soul. I've written a very simply put poem much like what you express here; it was written subsequent to self-reflection, as has my personal growth been about admittance and willing to recognize what needs to be changed. Don't hold out, my lady. Be true to yourself and f--k those who don't see who you are and what you have to offer. Don't spend time in misery, as we don't know how much time we have. Please read my poem "If". I had to re-entitle it to meet HB standards, but you'll recognize it when you look at my list.

Bless you, unknown. I'd like to see you become Known!

BraveWarrior,your first sentence made me smile..i just realized that why would i be just an 'unknown' when i can be a 'known'? but giving up the word "UN" is a risky thing to do..im just scared that if i'd do that, the "UN" and the "HIM" will together vanish. That's the other thing im scared of, that knowing we dont have enough time in this world, who knows when my time's up? and then i would have to regret that i've spent all my life waiting and in misery. Thanks really, i was thinking to erase the "UN" without erasign the "him"..

Glad to hear your comment. it helps. I will surely check check your hub, "if"

your comment means a lot to me James, i have used this hub to vent out my emotions when no one in my world wants to hear a thing.i'm still hoping that someday, a miracle that God has set for me will come.

As long as you never forget how much you have to offer the world, you will never be left behind. Life is full of miracles in the places, things, and experiences you'd never expect. Stay true to yourself and your value, there is no one on this planet who can determine your worth other than YOU.

Yes, maybe there are things in life that we overlooked and we just whine about it. and we think that there's no solution and hope for use. but somewhere in the middle of a story, there's a puzzle that will fit perfectly.

If we have never experienced love in all facets, how can we know it is true love? There is no perfect love..only unconditional love and that is rare in humans. Perhaps we could learn from our pets? They can sense when we need affection/attention..unlike our human partners..very inspiring poem..great job with the world of words...


unknown spy profile image

unknown spy 4 years ago from Neverland - where children never grow up. Author

yes kj force, i totally agree with you that unconditional love is very rare in humans. giving love without expecting in return, doing everything to make someone happy even if it hurts you. love is patience, love is kind. :) Thank you for the kind words kj force.

This is beautiful my dear; sad but beautiful nonetheless. I am not much on giving advice...I only speak about things I have lived through and if people can gain something from it then all the better. I think you have talent...I think you have something to teach others...but hiding from or avoiding pain is a waste of time. Letting actions be dictated by fear is a waste of time. We have to take chances or else we deny ourselves the opportunity to find true happiness. I wish you peace and happiness and I am very glad that I decided to follow you.

Billy.. Thank you thank you for reading. I just wished I;m strong and brave enough to let it go. I'm on this verge of decision-making, to take the chance or not. What are the consequences?..So hard. Thank you for the wishes, I know it'll helps a lot.

Thank you and always I'm glad to know that someone sees my talent and motivates me to go on.
