Life Chances

Life is full of chances.
How many do we take?
All or some?
Why don’t we take every chance we get to do something we’ve always wanted to do?
Because of the fact we have the fear of something new.
But with a little bit of courage we can overcome our fears and take as many chances as we want

It's such a relatable free-verse poem. Everybody needs to take chances-just watch Rocky. What struck me about this poem is that it's not really told in a poetic tone. That can be good. I could have easily just said this in everyday dialogue-but I wouldn't have had the courage to. that's the beauty of simple poems.
