chances

We Take chances for not knowing what is ahead of us, All we have is fear that surrounds us without any reasons; We take chances for not knowing what love is about, All we have is our expectation that keeps us moving ahead; Trying not to make the same mistake that haunts me every night, Realizing the emptiness that has left my heart with darkness and pain; It’s never easy taking every breath without thinking of tomorrow; All I have is just memories of yesterday that has left me of nothing, But I have somehow made it through the dark nights of my fears.

    Good morning, Saleem. Allow me to roll out the red carpet and welcome u to our comfy lil community of creativity and dreams..you will get out of this site what u put into it..the more details your comments are -usually the more detailed others will respond. ...This opening line of your verse grabbed me bc it is so universal a thot. For me,...the reasons that I have fear are FEAR of FAILING even if relational, spiritual, etc. And you are so right, it is a game of chance. All the best to you, Gwendolen

    Thank you so much for reading my work, and also for the advice. Really like to write more but time is not on my side and there is so much I would like to write.

    I like what you write of memories of yesterday, leaving nothing. Your poems remind me of the times I have felt pain so deeply that a sense of hopelessness comes forth, but also a sense of surrender in knowing that I don't understand this life, and maybe never will. And in a strange way finding peace in that. Thank you for your poems, and your comment on my piece.
