Would Have Beens.

Updated on July 28, 2017

"Opportunity will knock faithfully until Indecision fails to answer it's callings.-"Quote be me!"

I'm just sitting by the fire

watching the hungry flames climb higher

as they consume all of my wood

much like the early sparks of my life

claimed all my would have beens

back when hope had no chance to tire,

and possibilites were good.


Opportunity knocks the loudest

when you are young and you've yet to bleed

Like a woodpecker seeking sustenance

on which it daily feeds

you must answer it's call

when it sets your heart pounding

for the things you need

before your dreams all

turn to pure, white ash

and you wind up like me.


I've done the coulda,

woulda, shoulda's

for far too long and

all I'm left with is this song

you must take a stance

grasp at every chance

and don't worry when

one goes astray

life's far too short

to constantly abort

all that fortune sends your way

or you'll wind uo wailing

for your would have beens

much like I am here...today.


Opportunity knocks the loudest

when you are young and you've yet to bleed

the only knock that's louder is a bill collector

it's the way that "he" succeeds

when opportunity knocks

it can set your heart pounding

for all the things you need

before your dreams all

turn to pure, white ash

and you wind up just like me.


But as you can see

I'm still chasing the dream

of sweet opportunity

by sharing my deepest thoughts

Ignoring all my have nots

and perhaps someday I'll finally be

beyond t the knocking of opportunity

to that moments when it pays

dividends till the end

on which I can depend

cause I never let it slip away.
