Given A Chance

given a chance
life will keep living
given a chance
death backs away
given a chance
we can all be forgiving
given a chance
we can all change our ways

given a chance
the sun will shine
given a chance
the stars will glow
given a chance
a bell will chime
given a chance
faith will grow

given a chance
everyone is human
given a chance
we can all feel guilt
given a chance
you can become a new man
given a chance
new lives can be built

given a chance
light will prevail
given a chance
we believe in hope
given a chance
our ships will set sail
given a chance
we all learn to cope

given a chance
we all make our mark
given a chance
someone will see it
given a chance
a tree grows bark
given a chance
I hope you believe it

given a chance
we look past ourselves
given a chance
we look out for others
given a chance
into the heart we delve
given a chance
we are there for one another

Thanks! I have another poem up called "Atop the Angels," could you check that one out? It's one of my better ones that I've submitted, and feedback would be nice. Also, I'll be sure to check out a few of your works if you have any up (haven't looked yet). It's the least I can do in exchange for a compliment!
