Opportunities and Chances
Opportunities big or small
Afraid they'll lead me to my fall
Why can't I just have it all
Instead of hitting an emotional wall

It's the choices I make
And the chances I take
That can lead me to a heart that aches
Or up and out of destructions wake.
So why do I sit here eating ice cream 
Not knowing what's real or just a dream
My memories make me want to scream
Yet not everything is as it may seem.
Maybe life has found new ground
If only I can get past the sound 
Good things might be coming round
I just have to let me be found 

Author's Notes:
after years of inactivity I decided to check in on my account and reread poems of my past. After falling down an emmotinal rabbit hole I decided to write and post a new poem about my feelings. The title is inspired by a line in one my favorite book series of all time, the black jewels.
