A Chance

I look back at the years gone by,
And wonder, what if today I die.
But today is the day I was born,
And I see no reason to be forlorn.

For the smiles that still remain,
For the tears I can't refrain,
For the joy I can't explain,
For the days I spent in pain,
Give me a chance - I'll live it all again.

For the ones who chose to stay,
For the ones now far away,
For the love that went astray,
For the love I couldn't say,
Give me a chance - I'll live it all again.

For the wounds I harshly caused,
For the doors I blindly passed,
For the anger I did not restrain,
For the ones I held in disdain,
Give me a chance - I'll change what I can.

For the words I did not ban,
For the flames I did not fan,
For the times I turned and ran,
For the times I was a lesser man,
Give me a chance - I'll change what I can.

    To just add on to that, accept the good and the bad that has been foisted on me, but try to change the bad things that were caused by me.
