I Guess I Did Not Win

Updated on December 11, 2011

We All Take Chances Everyday

 Where to begin

A chance at life

I Want to be part of something big

I Want To dream of something I can not have

I have a shot no mattter how slim

I can think of what it will mean for me to win

It can change the way I think and do things now

I can help others with the gifts I have found

I am always a winner no matter what I do

You can lead

You can follow

It all begins how we think are thoughts

Where we go and what we have accomplished

The satisfaction of being elite

One with pride and helping others in a pinch

I can not make a deposit of gold for what I have learned

It shines like silver and keeps me happy all night

I have taken many shots some in the dark

I go where others gave up and went the other direction

I am still here and feeling richier and happier each day that passes

I want to share my wealth

It starts with my good health and every notion I concoct

I no nothing else but learning how to share all my good fortune

I go into my pocket not a penny in there

So I have learned another important lesson

It is not what you have but what you can bear

I do not have to put it in a safe

I do not have to worry about it being misplaced or ruined

I can show it proudly and wear it like a Medal Of Honor on my chest

I have lived a life the wealthiest in the world would be jealous

It sky rockets like a favorite stock going through the roof with profits

It can never crash and be worthless the next day because of depression

I can never be sad

I will never lose what I once had

      You are the greatest winner of all, because you have learned from your losses and your gains, that is a wealth few have or hold, it is worth far more than any gold. Wisdom is a treasure that must be discovered, and cherished.~~Superb write~~~MFB III
