      Hello Misbah!
      Excellent response to the word prompt, Chance. I liked reading through your well expressed poems. I found it inspiring, and uplifting. I agree with your thoughts that we all take chances, in fact, we have to.
      Thank you John, for sharing Misbah’s work. I couldn’t find the link here, but found it on Misbah’s profile page. May be, it’s just me.
      Thank you for sharing, and best wishes to both of you.

        Dear Di, thank you very much for reading and for your very positive feedback. I'm delighted you found it uplifting and inspiring. John has posted the link in the opening post, but it isn't working. It happens sometimes. Maybe, someone can re-post the link to make it live. smile

        Please take care and keep smiling.
        Blessings and lots of Love!!

    Misbah
    Thank you so much with that warm welcome.  It feels good to be back in some capacity.

    Little-by-little I'll be back full time before long.

    I like that "you have to fail so you can practice being brave "


    "We All Take Chances"
    This one shows us that everything that happens in our life is actually a chance that we're taking and each moment we're getting braver.

    "Phoenix"  This one shows us just how hard life can be.

    We are faced with many challenges joyous moments as well as sad ones.

    There are times our eyes cry like the ocean And we fear what a new day might bring.

    But we see God as he reaches for us and guides us Towards a new tomorrow.

    We could remove the obstacles standing in our way and start over once again.

    In the silence we see our chance we see tomorrow yesterday and today.


    "Moments of Happiness!"  This one teaches us to grab those moments of happiness whether they are planned or spontaneous.

    Each moment is rare and beautiful.  So take the chance.


    "All My Joys Against a Rainy Background!"
    This one shows us the when we  Are faced Faced with days of sadness we can overcome them.

    It may seem like we are surrounded with sadness And days that will never end.

    We feel like the rain is pouring down on our lives but suddenly we we see a light shine and everything sparkles.

    It is then that we know everything is gonna be OK.

    "Is There Something Like ‘Second Chance’?"  That's a great introduction for 2nd chance.  We are all human we all make mistakes and and if by chance you get it offered offered a redo ~ grab it.


    "Second Chance!"  This one teaches us the sometimes it takes something really hard in life. Something Drastic to make us want to change.

    To make someone try to be better it be better to prove that they deserve a second chance.

    Misbah
    These poems are so fantastic girl.

    I started to send you a message and tell you I would read them in the morning, But after I read the 1st one I just couldn't stop.

    Great Job.  I'll post the link in the word Prompt article.

      Thank you so much for this lovely comment, dear Bredz. I'm overjoyed that you liked my response to your word prompt, 'Chance'. I had a lot of fun penning these poems as well. Yes, I believe that life does provide second chances sometimes. All we have to do is recognize and seize the opportunity. I hope you are doing well.

      Please take care and keep smiling.
      Hugs, love and Blessings!! smile

    Dear Misbah, Your poems always make us think.  That last one was particularly powerful.  I find myself hoping that the man can overcome his demons that come in a bottle, and that the couple can reunite and live happily.  Your poems and the quotes were all thought-provoking.  Thanks John and Chitrangada.
