Only One Shot
The words you want to say were at the tip of your tongue
And they just remained there; unspoken
Because you thought they won’t come out right.
The hands you long to touch was just an inch away
But you never tried to reach it,
Because you thought you might let it go.
The opportunity was already within your grasp
But you just let other people grab it,
Because you thought the risks will pull you down.
The chance to make a change is right in front of your face
But you never dared to take it
Because you thought failure is all you will have
The words you never said…
The hands you never reached…
The opportunities you did not grab…
The chances you did not take…
…a moment’s hesitation will be a lifetime regret.
