Choices of Chances

One too many, yet never enough.
Given the chance, then giving it up.
Playing the cards, when better to fold.
Given a secret, yet tell what was told.
Rolling the dice, yet land the wrong way.
Down on one knee, then nothing to say.
Stakes are high, yet the risk you don’t take.
Lending your heart, then having it break.
Turning left, when should have gone right.
Acting up, then you’re starting a fight.
Saying yes, yet should’ve said no.
Being a kid, then life you outgrow.
Offered love, yet you keep to yourself.
Full of emotion, yet a doll on a shelf.
Given the choice, then never to choose.
Life has no end, yet one day we all lose.
