Understepping Five

Are all your days meant to be the same?
Will you choose to live a boring life?
Don't be afraid you should take a chance.
if you want to, you should start today
Many people will only try once.
You know when there is something worthwhile.
When you try the old is new again.


To find the hidden message refer to my poem "Understepping One"
The directions are on the bottom.

    Richard is this another new form you will be trying to get installed here? Suzette was at her blog today asking how we would like poetry contests that use a code. You should let her in on this one.

    "Are you afraid to try something new" is the understepped line. 1st word 1st line second word 2nd line, 3rd word third line, 4th word 4th line, 5th word 5th line, 6th word 6th line and 7th word 7th line. string them all together and you have the understepped line. All lines must be 9 sylables including understepped line.
