        Hi Chitrangada,
        Thanks for the uplifting comments. I am happy you liked my response and found the poems motivating. It is an interesting prompt and it made me think as to how often we don't taking chances for fear of the risks involved and later regret about it. I enjoyed writing about it too. Have a great day and week ahead, stay blessed.

    Vidya, this poem is very uplifting and inspirational. I love the quotes also.

    Thanks Vidya  For that wonderful introduction. 

    I'm happy to be back.  Let's just hope I can stay with course.

    Your quote is so true we all have to make the decision for ourselves.


    When we take chances we are setting ourselves up for either a win or a failure.

    We have to be ready to accept whatever outcome plays out.


    In your poem "give yourself a chance"  You show us that we should take a chance.

    We will never know and we might regret the opportunity if not taken.
    Sometimes things will work out and we might really find our dreams.

    We'll never know if we don't try.

    Chance-An Acrostic Poem
    Shows us that we need to change our mindset & take the risk.
    It's better to take the chance than to have regrets later.
    Either way, we gain so much.

    This is a great article & response to the word prompt.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article.

    Dear Brenda,
    It is good to have you and the word prompts back. We were missing your beautiful poems and inspiring word prompts. Thanks for taking the time to read and summarise my poems and posting the link. I am glad you liked my response. I have often faced this dilemma in life,  whether to take a chance on something or not. The risks associated with taking a chance often deter us. But when it clicks, it brings a lot of happiness. It was an interesting prompt to work on. Thanks for giving us this word prompt. Take care, have a great day and week ahead, stay blessed.

    Dear Peggy, thanks for the encouraging comments. I am glad you liked my response. I believe that when we take a chance and change, we progress in life. Not trying will only make us regret later. I have faced such situations many times in life. Have a blessed day and week ahead my friend, take care.

    These poems are a terrific response to Brenda's prompt. You encourage us to take that chance in life so we do not live with regrets. I think that is so true. As you said we tend to want to stay in the comfort of what we know, but the rewards can be so good when we do take that risk. These are both well-written poems.

    Thank you for posting Vidya's poems Misbah.

      Dear Pamela, thanks for the kind comments. It is true that in life we get many chances, but the fear of the unknown makes us reluctant to take them and later we regret. But those who are brave and take the chances without fear of the risks very often succeed and get ahead. I enjoyed writing the poems and am glad that Brenda is back with the word prompts to encourage us. Have a blessed week ahead my friend.
