We might find pleasure in enjoying the little things,

We might make this a lasting thing.
Something to tell OUR grand kids.
You never know and that's the beauty of it
We still try and even thou LOVE hurts,

Maybe the sun will Rise  AGAIN

And

you'll fall in love with me.
Take a chance on me cuz ,

Chance's ARE....,

Another chance
Another chance
I beg
Give me a second chance
.
.
.
Another chance
Another chance
I beg
Give me another chance
.
.
.
Another chance
Another chance
I beg
One last chance
...
No?
Why not?
Let me prove myself
Another chance
...
No answer...
I...
I blew it
Another chance you gave me more than once
And I haven't proven myself
I see...
Did I even deserve a third chance?
Did I even deserve a second chance?
Did... I ever deserve a chance in the first place?
I saw her sitting at the table
Eating with her friends
I got up to go on over
It was if I had the bends

I saw her later having coffee
With a friend sitting outside
I went to go on over
And my mouth got all tongue tied

One chance baby, that is all you get
Don't blow it when it comes your way
Once chance, that's all you get
Make a good impression
Say something they won't forget
One chance baby, one chance is all you get

I went in for an interview
I was nervous as could be
When I was asked a question
Would you hire you if you were me?

I thought for a few seconds
I thought that I would rolf
Then I said "I'd hire me"
"you'd then have time to go play golf!"

I saw the woman of my dreams
She was drinking at the bar
I knew I had to talk to her
But, if I was gonna get that far

I'd have to down my courage
Put the right words in my mouth
For if I blew it up right then
My love life would go south

One chance baby, that is all you get
Don't blow it when it comes your way
Once chance, that's all you get
Make a good impression
Say something they won't forget
One chance baby, one chance is all you get

We'd been dating for a while
It was time to make the leap
I had to show her parents
I wasn't just a creep

I knew the words I needed
I would ask them for her hand
But as I got closer to her father
My mouth was filled with sand

One chance baby, that is all you get
Don't blow it when it comes your way
Once chance, that's all you get
Make a good impression
Say something they won't forget
One chance baby, one chance is all you get
I am in love with chance and all her open promises, inherent risks, and bountiful rewards. I am in love with the idea of gambling myself into existence and riding the dice on a whim. Certainty bores and scares me, permanence poisons my happy mindset. I need risks and dangers and dumb ideas, it is in these that I find the fruit of life.

I am in love with chance. She calls my name often, beckoning me to spend the night. She seduces me with ***** talk and a proven mind, flooding my heart with her drug. I long to fall into her, with her, to kiss her mouth and taste the poison of an uncertain life. I crave her in the night when there is naught but doubt in my mind.

I am in love with chance and the chaos she brings. She is a storm that tosses my little boat on waves that could equally take me to paradise or a watery grave. She is fairness and equality, for chaos is truly fair, it rids me of order and structure. Her screaming pleasure enraptures me with a sodden wealth and unhealthy appetite for potential glories.

I am in love with chance. She is my mistress, my plaything, the dark shadow that leaves my bed before the morning light. She is the elusive lover to whom my young heart belongs, the fiery being to which my trust is pledged. Chance has yet to let me down – perhaps that is why I love her. I am never disappointed in chance for she is, above all, fair and just. There is not evil or malice in she, there is no hidden agenda or destructive intent.

I am in love with chance.
I am in love with chance.
I am in love with chance and her barren wealth.
I am in love with chance and the way she feeds my zealous lust for life.
I am in love with chance and she loves me.
I am in love with chance and I must choose…

I must choose between her love and your certain certainty.
Her love is opportunity

I don't believe in hope,
Hope is only a feeling of expectation,
A desire for a certain thing to happen,
If hoping too high,
I'll crumble easily towards failure.

I don't even need sympathy,
Because there will be no desire,
Loves aren't remarkable if based on pity.

For me,
All I need is chance,
Chance to earn your faith,
Chance to build up trust,
Chance to know you better,
Chance to grow older together.

Just give me chance to love you better,
Give me chance to build up spark and desire,
To give all my love to you forever.

Give me chance dear crush,
Give me chance to enter your life,
Give me chance to win your heart,
Give me chance to fulfill your dreams,
Where I'll be the king and you'll be the queen.

Give me the chance
To show you how to paint the wind.
We’ll be streaked in marigold and
Calypso blue, acrylic staining our
Hands and our faces and our legs and
Our lips.

Give me the chance
To teach you constellations at night.
I’ll point them out for you, each
Star comprising Orion, or Cygnus, or
My favorite, the Little Dipper;
We can trace them all with
Our fingertips.

Give me the chance
To dance with you in the rain.
Water droplets glistening in hair,
Lashes, as we twirl silly in
These sopping clothes— still tight,
Our grip.

Give me the chance.

Give me the chance
To whisper something in your ear.
A delicate sensation, like lace or
Light embrace, my words
Fluttering into your mind like
The butterflies we caught when
We were kids.

Give me the chance
To look at you a little longer than I’m supposed to.
I’d forget I was staring and then you’d
Turn towards me and I’d turn
Mad red because I was caught, and so I’d think to myself,
“Look what you did.”

Give me the chance
To get lost in your voice.
Language becomes a different entity when you speak;
The way your words wrap around me is
Mesmerizing, and each cadence strikes some
Chord deep within me that I thought
I hid.

Give me the chance
To ensconce myself in your heart.
I know I am small, and obscure, and odd, but
You are a Divine Truth, and before you
I knew only lies, and deceptions, and a bland and colorless world which now
You have blessed.

Give me the chance
To think about you every hour of every ******* day;
My entire being revolves around your existence and
Your beauty and your overwhelming goodness and
I try to stop but
These thoughts will never cease because you are you and
I am obsessed.

Give me the chance
To love you with every fragment of my heart.

Give me the chance.

There is always another chance
A chance, after one loses, to win
A chance, after one falls, to get up
A chance, after one fails, to succeed
There is always another chance...

Opportunity never ends,
Its faith which ends,
Its efforts which ends,
Its hope which ends,
But still there is always another chance...

Future is unseen with a hidden treasure,
It can have a life full of pleasure,
But the treasure requires a key,
A key of efforts, some fruitful and some barren,
So, there is always another chance...

Just trust yourself and give your best,
Be positive and forget the rest,
Hope is required, every other thing is waste
Don't forget, There is always another chance...

All it requires is to find the chance,
All it requires is to grab the chance,
But never worry if you can't make it yours,
There is always another chance...

I wish I still had the chance to say, "I love you"
I wish I still had the chance to kiss her on her cheek,
I wish I still had the chance to say, "Thank You"
I wish I still had th chanc to hug so tight, because if I did, I would never let go,
I wish I still had the chance to say, "sorry for not being there with you all the time."
I wish I still had the chance to get to re know her. I wish I still had the chance to smile at her,
I wish I had the chance to tell her thank you for taking me in when I felt like no one cared. I wish I could spend a night with her and sleep in bed righ beside her,
Like I used to do when I was only so young,
I wish I had the chance to relive the very funny and special days I've had with her,
I wish I had the chance to get to know her again,
I wish I had the chance to shop with her, and do everything with her like I used to do,
But I lost all of those chances when she passed away in March.
Just last chance my love,
Just trust me and believe,
Last chance to show you,
Last chance to love you,

All I ask I Last chance,
To put you in nine place,
I messed up in the past,
But this time I will be the best,

It was a mistake to say adieu,
I still need your bisou,
I'm here to rescue,
Just Last kick ,

I'm not Evanescent,
I just realised you are important,
I'm at my lowest point,
I just feel your love,
 
Babe just last chance to fix,
Last chance to put you on empyrean,
To fly like an erne,
I'm tired of being alone,

Just one chance to love you,
Just one chance to show you ,
I want you my dear,
All I'm asking for is last chance,

I promise you will feel clamix,
I feel like I'm listening to a mix,
I love and need you.
Babe all I'm asking for is last chance

As I awake from eternal slumber
I rise from the ground covered with ash
Bound in a circle of fire
You can call me Johnny Cash
Hands through the fire
They don't burn, no pain
I am immune to fire it seems
Walk right through
surrounded by lightning skies
Thunder rattles my ears
Though I don't burn
I can feel the heat
A thousand degrees
Memories flash before my eyes
Of a past life
I remember monsters and me
Locked together in purgatory

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
First I need to figure where I am
Was I resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
This doesn't feel like the earth
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I find myself in
Maybe this is my hell
I must have been ******
Because of the sins branded in me
Nobody around in sight
I'm on my own again this time

I've wandered these deserts for many years
No hope in sight
Not sure if in circles I have been walking
Because all the scenery I've seen
All looks the same to me
Trapped in this box
Just a Jack waiting to be set free
Wind me up so I can breathe
See the light just one more time
My mind has slowly deteriorated, insane
Not sure I'll ever be the same
This is torture, this is the pain
This burns even more than the flame
Trapped in this place
I cannot stay
I need to break free of this cell
Can't stay here trapped in hell

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
First I need to figure where I am
Was I resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
This doesn't feel like the earth
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I find myself in
Maybe this is my hell
I must have been ******
Because of the sins branded in me
Nobody around in sight
I'm on my own again this time

Fed myself holy water,
It burns me inside
Too late for confessing past sins
Can't be forgiven for this
Keep hearing voices taunting me
Saying I'll never be good enough
Can't save myself from the pain I've been dealt
You have failed yourself and everyone else
Them words on repeat, the laughs and the screams
Making fun of me
I'm nothing more than an empty shell
Of who I once was
Tried to be too strong on my own
Now I see it takes more to fight demons and monster alone
The mistakes that I've made
Are put on parade through my dreams
Bound and chained to never leave me

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
First I need to figure where I am
Was I resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
This doesn't feel like the earth
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I find myself in
Maybe this is my hell
I must have been ******
Because of the sins branded in me
Nobody around in sight
I'm on my own again this time

My soul was torn to shreds
Now just an empty vessel
Eyes pitch black
Not a light left inside
My heart was ripped from my chest
Follow your heart, Now just a distant memory
Said I wouldn't fade
Soulless and Heartless maybe I am
But I'll fight with everything I have left
Until broken in pieces upon the floor
Until I'm unable to move anymore

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
First I need to figure where I am
Was I resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
This doesn't feel like the earth
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I find myself in
Maybe this is my hell
I must have been ******
Because of the sins branded in me
Nobody around in sight
I'm on my own again this time

It was just monsters and me in Purgatory
Now I see I'm trapped in myself
Fighting the monsters that I had become
To my own demons, I was forced to succumb
But I won't stand for it no more
I'll do what it takes
To claim my throne
Needed a little help
Needed a little guidance
From my angels of light
Help me to reclaim my life
So I'm here praying
Drenched in tears
I need you to help me beat these fears
I need you to support me out of here
Hear my prayers and all I have to say
I need purification
Plunge me beneath these holy seas
Wash me clean, help me heal
I want the power to feel

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
Found out where it is I am
Wasn't resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
But this feels like home
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I once found myself in
Maybe this was hell
I may have been ******
But I found beauty in who I am
Because of the sins branded in me
They gave me the strength
to find a new way
Nobody was around in sight
There was one beyond my eyes
He filled me with eternal light
Now I've got to let it shine.

I know it's too late to move
I know it's too late to express
I know I can't have the chance I need
I know you won't notice me.

I don't believe in hope,
Hope is only a feeling of expectation,
A desire for a certain thing to happen,
If hoping too high,
I'll crumble easily towards failure.

I don't even need sympathy,
Because there will be no desire,
Love aren't remarkable if based on pity.

For me,
All I need is chance,
Chance to earn your faith,
Chance to build up trust,
Chance to know you better,
Chance to grow older together.

Just give me chance to love you better again,
Give me chance to build up the spark and desire again,
To give all my love to you forever.

Give me chance my dear
Give me chance to enter your life again,
Give me chance to win your heart again,
Give me chance to fulfill your dreams,
Where I'll be the king and you'll be the queen.
Just give another chance to show you how I feel because I'm not joking about my feelings for you.

When you attempt something first time and fail, You will get a next chance...
When you try to create something new and it collapse, You will get a next chance….
When your soul gets hurt and no one helps to heal you out…
When smile is not enough, Don’t make a pout …
When nothing goes in your favour, Please don’t shout ...
Keep your step back and just wait, As you will get a next chance...
When you climbing a hill and suddenly dropped down , you will get a next chance...
When everything goes in vain and you get totally lost, Just stay calm as you will get a next chance…

But what this next chance is?

It is nothing but just a motivating force
When you're in a deep sorrow It will gives you a new hope,
It hold you tight just like a safety rope,
It energies you to a new scope,
So there always be a next chance, Untill and Unless you don’t lose hope…
When failure hits you hard, make a step back, work a little more, step forward again with extra effort, let your failure behind and move towards a shiny day with only success and hope.

Is there a chance I could fit into your life
If not
Stab me with a knife
No reason to talk about it
Walk around it
Or think about it
Is there a chance
You see what I see
Feel what I feel
This is not lets make a deal
Ask
We could talk over a meal
Sounds Ideal
No baggage here
Nothing that needs to heal
If there is a chance
Don't be shy
Take a chance on me
Be all we can be
What would it take for you to agree
To take a chance on me
I can guarantee
There would be great *** with me
Kick the others to the curb
While using an action verb
I promise I want think your disturbed
Then you will see more then just a blur
When you take a chance on me
Your mind then will be clear
Then no reason to call anyone else dear
I will be the one that will  always appear
When you take a chance on me
I will be quick to fall to my knees
There will be more then wine and cheese
I know for a fact you will feel the breeze
and you will be appeased
with no disagrees
By taking a chance on me
After this do you agree
To take a chance on me
Yep, Your right, if you think this is about you and me
It is what it seems
An invitation to be with me
                !

I remember taking that chance,
the chance that has changed the past few years of my life.
The chance that if i wouldn't have taken, I would've never met the love of my teens.
Some say I should't have taken it.
They said you were toxic for me.
But they don't understand why i took a chance on you.
They didn't see your tears on that sunday night during the breakdown,
when you were so vulnerable and you came to me.
They didn't see me when I was laying on the floor,
screaming about ending it all, sobbing into your chest.
They didn't see our connection.
If i had the choice I would take the chance again.
I would take the chance of experience our teenage love just one more time,
mostly, because this time i wouldn't take the chance of letting you end it all.
I wouldn't go on vacation and leave you alone to cry by yourself on that awful night .
If i had another chance i would stop you,
so I wouldn't have to finish high school without my true love.
I would take the chance so i could quit blaming myself.
Just so i could lay in your arms, once again.

Sometimes its hard to know
Where ever iN Life
You  go
Sometimes you only get
One chance perhaps?

And somehow you learn
things don't always turn
Out the way that you had hoped
It would

Tis  the One chance you earn?

There is alwaYs hope
In this life
You will cope
Just cause
You WILL get
One chance perhaps?

Don't let it go by
Without you realise-
That you recEive
One chance
That  much   is True

Sometimes you dare to reacH
Deep within yOur soul
To keep
HappinEss surely goes
Where your dreams will lead
And you can clearly fEel
One chance is so Very  Real

And don't ever SHed a tear
When you think it isn't here
For to your heart
God speak
ONe chance

Sometimes its all that yOu can ever Do

One chance you get
That much I know
Is True

One chance you get
Is what I'm
Wishing you...

Chance


take a chance with me i

do you see what i see

cause i see stars and lights in your eyes
brighter than cars or heavens sunrise

so take a chance with me
rip all the pages, **** the book
read between the lines
well make a bible of all the eyes and looks

cause we’ll make it
they said don’t fake it
but this is my chance so i’m gonna take it

just, think about it like a coin
flip a coin
heads tails
you succeed or you could fail and
my dad was weak and he was frail
so i don’t have many coins to entail

just this one.
i’ll take my chances
i’ll be done
but if it’s heads i hope it’s yours i face
and if it’s tails i’m in
for a lifelong race

but life is short
so take a chance
too short not to dance
like no ones watching
cause i’m not stopping

take a chance
cause if you fail the sun will still advance
my heart will still prance i
think you know what i mean

what we see? do you see what i see
chances are it’s silly to watch you sleep but
darling you would too if you saw what i see

they don’t even see
their heads are empty
your heart might break
and it won’t be so easy
but i like a challenge
no stranger to pain
another chance i’m willing to take

chances are you’re the only one
my heart is locked and won’t come undone
take a chance it might be fun
it might be not be your only one
but i have my eyes set on the sun
i’m gonna make it
this is my chance, and like hell im gonna take it

you* want a second chance with me!?
The first time around you told me no,
but now you want to see if "we" will work out?
I took a chance to see if "we" would work, you said no.
Now the tables have turned and you are revisiting "us"
well here's my answer. No.
Why do you let fear drive you?
You never gave me a chance, and now you'll never have the chance again.
If we were truly meant to be then should've let your guard down and given me the chance.

You said I was different, but you treated me like everyone else.
1 yr. later and I've moved on,
I'm over you, but you're trying to re-kindle the flame I once had.
"we" won't work out even though you want to give me the chance.
You'll give me the chance now,
but I don't want you.
The tables have turned,
you never trusted me enough to give me a decent chance.
To the girl who turned down the request to be my girlfriend:

You told me secrets no one else knows, about your childhood and the struggles of abuse, multiple suicide attempts, and a failed engagement. I understood you, and I wanted us to be more than just friends.
You wanted to be more than just friends with me too, you said so.
It still hurts to know you threw me away despite what we had.
All I wanted was the honesty I gave you, reciprocated. But you couldn't tell me all you truly felt, instead 1 year later I learn that you did indeed love me but I was moving too fast- why couldn't you have just told me that? Instead you couldn't even tell me to my face, but sent 4 text messages and we're through. Shallow. All-time low. I was so sure you were the one. Coincidence? We're both still single and alone full a year later, and I've never been more content to be single. Last April was a different story, we had a genuine relationship but you never gave me the chance because you let irrational fear drive us apart. There's no looking back now - I'm just a lost cause it's all I'll ever be. TM

For years, I've waited
For a chance to come
To hold your hand
And to call you mine
Every year I felt
Like I took another knife to my chest
But I never said anything
Because I secretly wished
That good things came
To those who waited

You see,
I always had this dark thought
That people who rushed making decisions
Would meet their doom
Just as fast as they took their chance

But more years came
And more knives I took

One year,
I saw my chance
You held it
Like it was yours
And I was very ecstatic
That no one but you held it
You grasped onto my chance
Like it was your life
Like it was the most precious thing in the world
Then, I decided not to take my precious chance
Away from you
I decided to wait for you
To offer it to me
Because that would've felt better

I decided to wait for you
To finally hold my hand
And call me yours

I decided to wait

I subliminally agreed to myself, again
That good things came to those who waited

You continued on with your life
But you still kept my chance
I wanted you to give me my chance back
But you never did...

I watched my chance come and go
I watched you give my chance away
To someone else..
I watched as you crushed my heart
And I didn't say a word
Nor did I ever tell you
That I was hurt

I just watched you take a chance
but not on me..

And all I did
was wait..
...and watch
I just...

Willing to Take a Chance

All my life I’ve been wasting time so afraid of what people think and what they might say. So, I played it safe doing everything someone else’s way, always wondering who I am, asking myself again and again.

But I’m willing to take a chance. Yes, I’m ready to take a chance, to awaken these dreams buried deep inside of me.

All my life following all the rules. Doing everything other people do just to fit in. But the saddest part is I never did. Now I look back and wonder what I could have been.

But I’m willing to take a chance. Yes, I’m ready to take a chance, to awaken these dreams buried deep inside of me.

All my life friends weaved their way in and out, leaving me so confused. And there have been lovers too, that I’ve amused. I’m left empty. Nothing’s ever filled me.

But I’m willing to take a chance. Yes, I’m ready to take a chance, to awaken these dreams buried deep inside of me.

All my life keeping quiet like a blanket draped over the couch. Hoping someone out there would unfold me on a rainy day. Maybe someone could see the possibility in me before it was too late.

But I’m willing to take a chance. Yes, I’m ready to take a chance, to awaken these dreams buried deep inside of me.

If you would see me,

You'd notice me looking at you at any chance I get.

If you would hear me,

You'd notice me talking to you at any chance I get.

If you would smell me,

You'd notice me staying my best for you at any chance I get.

If you would feel me,

You'd notice me shaking over being with you at any chance I get.

If you would kiss me,

You'd notice that I'd been waiting to do this at every chance I get.

As I awake from eternal slumber
I rise from the ground covered with ash
Bound in a circle of fire
You can call me Johnny Cash
Hands through the fire
They don't burn, no pain
I am immune to fire it seems
Walk right through
surrounded by lightning skies
Thunder rattles my ears
Though I don't burn
I can feel the heat
A thousand degrees
Memories flash before my eyes
Of a past life
I remember monsters and me
Locked together in purgatory

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
First I need to figure where I am
Was I resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
This doesn't feel like the earth
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I find myself in
Maybe this is my hell
I must have been ******
Because of the sins branded in me
Nobody around in sight
I'm on my own again this time

I've wandered these deserts for many years
No hope in sight
Not sure if in circles I have been walking
Because all the scenery I've seen
All looks the same to me
Trapped in this box
Just a Jack waiting to be set free
Wind me up so I can breathe
See the light just one more time
My mind has slowly deteriorated, insane
Not sure I'll ever be the same
This is torture, this is the pain
This burns even more than the flame
Trapped in this place
I cannot stay
I need to break free of this cell
Can't stay here trapped in hell

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
First I need to figure where I am
Was I resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
This doesn't feel like the earth
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I find myself in
Maybe this is my hell
I must have been ******
Because of the sins branded in me
Nobody around in sight
I'm on my own again this time

Fed myself holy water,
It burns me inside
Too late for confessing past sins
Can't be forgiven for this
Keep hearing voices taunting me
Saying I'll never be good enough
Can't save myself from the pain I've been dealt
You have failed yourself and everyone else
Them words on repeat, the laughs and the screams
Making fun of me
I'm nothing more than an empty shell
Of who I once was
Tried to be too strong on my own
Now I see it takes more to fight demons and monster alone
The mistakes that I've made
Are put on parade through my dreams
Bound and chained to never leave me

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
First I need to figure where I am
Was I resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
This doesn't feel like the earth
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I find myself in
Maybe this is my hell
I must have been ******
Because of the sins branded in me
Nobody around in sight
I'm on my own again this time

My soul was torn to shreds
Now just an empty vessel
Eyes pitch black
Not a light left inside
My heart was ripped from my chest
Follow your heart, Now just a distant memory
Said I wouldn't fade
Soulless and Heartless maybe I am
But I'll fight with everything I have left
Until broken in pieces upon the floor
Until I'm unable to move anymore

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
First I need to figure where I am
Was I resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
This doesn't feel like the earth
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I find myself in
Maybe this is my hell
I must have been ******
Because of the sins branded in me
Nobody around in sight
I'm on my own again this time

It was just monsters and me in Purgatory
Now I see I'm trapped in myself
Fighting the monsters that I had become
To my own demons, I was forced to succumb
But I won't stand for it no more
I'll do what it takes
To claim my throne
Needed a little help
Needed a little guidance
From my angels of light
Help me to reclaim my life
So I'm here praying
Drenched in tears
I need you to help me beat these fears
I need you to support me out of here
Hear my prayers and all I have to say
I need purification
Plunge me beneath these holy seas
Wash me clean, help me heal
I want the power to feel

Resurrection
Need a new direction
A new chance I've been given
May have a chance to mend my ways
Found out where it is I am
Wasn't resurrected by a holy man
It seems I'm not in heaven
But this feels like home
Nothing around but Ash and Dirt
A wasteland I once found myself in
Maybe this was hell
I may have been ******
But I found beauty in who I am
Because of the sins branded in me
They gave me the strength
to find a new way
Nobody was around in sight
There was one beyond my eyes
He filled me with eternal light
Now I've got to let it shine.

i want a chance to feel like a trophy, as if you win that game, you get me.

I want a chance to feel needed in every possible way,

i want a chance to feel loved,

i want a chance to eat like I had never eaten before,

I want to feel like Beyoncé, when you see me, you go crazy,

I want to live my life being successful and not being lazy,

i want a chance to be told that I'm the world and that I'm everything and that I'm worth it all,

I don't want to feel like a stupid basketball,

i want a chance to be lucky and to enjoy life,

i want a chance to be bought everything I want,

I want a chance to be liked so much that everyone would write me poems.
I just wanna feel wanted and need.

Sentimental,
As I look back.
The love my parents showed me,
The love I showed my nieces.
And here I am with
A chance to be a role model as an uncle,
A chance to make my parents proud,
A chance for their approval.

Decimated,
As I look forward.  
The things I want to do,
The people I want to love.
And here I am with
A chance to change,
What the past eighteen years meant.
A chance to reinvent myself,
A chance to be myself.

And so here I find myself,
Just another book on the shelf.
Should I stay in the same category,
So my parents will be laudatory?
Or do I think of my memento mori,
And write my own story.

Guilty,
As I think of what I could do,
To my parents,
My nieces,
To the ones that I once loved.
So here I am,
Decimated yet sentimental,
As I sit here looking,
At the scars on my arm,
And that thing I hold in my hand.
A chance for their approval,
Or a chance for myself,
Or a chance to end it all,
A chance to pull the trigger.

She doesn’t deserve a chance
You’ve given hundreds more
Than she would ever need
All while she slept comfortably.

She doesn’t deserve a chance
You’ve offered thousands more
Than she would ever realized
All while she viewed simply.

She doesn’t deserve a chance
You’ve offerend millions more
Than she would ever believe
All while she thought easily.

I deserve the precious chance
You haven’t offered one
That I would take with love
All while I dreamt widely.

I deserve a chance.
Living my life barely passing by
Just trying to make ends meet.
It certainly doesn't help that I'm shy
This shyness leads me to being beat
Out of a good life, of a job and so I sit here all day
Praying and hoping and wishing while knowing that from poverty I cannot escape.
Pleading for someone to help me
Put a bit more food on my plate.
I am so deep down in poverty
That I just want to quit
From life. I want to die
Then all this suffering will end.
I have reached the point where I don't want to try
Too many problems that I cannot mend.

Poverty is a disease that spreads and spreads
If not treated quickly it can lead to death.
It is a disgusting, repulsive, and horrid thing
And Canada tries to act so clean.
The government continues to fail to see
The needs of those living in poverty.

Playing as some country where everyone is nice
Global citizens huh? Yeah right.
How can you help other people when we are helpless ourselves?
There are people crying and pleading and begging for help
And you turn the cold shoulder, leave them to die
Maybe give them a small sum of money, then its goodbye.
Not everyone chooses poverty, it's sometimes handed to them
And what they need most is a helping hand.
So why aren't we helping those people in need?
Us global citizens, whats with all the greed?
The money is useless if it lasts a few days
They can be helped in so many more ways.
The biggest help they can get is to be given a chance
To rise above their problems, just help them stand.
So easy yet, so little is done
You deserve an award, government of Canada.
Just smile for the camera, make us look good
Don't do the right thing, don't do what you should

I guess poverty has just spread too fast
And it's not our fault if our help won't last.
We did our best, gave them some money
If you wanted to be successful, you would have done so already.
It's not my fault you are the poorest of the poor
So please don't come knocking at my door.
I can't offer any help, I have done enough
And if you don't leave me alone I'll call the cops.

Yes A for effort, well at least you tried
My suffering will end, for soon we will die.
If only I had a chance to try
to pick myself up, I would still be alive.
I received some money and I'm real grateful
But a chance would have made me feel real hopeful.

The only cure from this disease that is called poverty
Is the one that was never given to me.
A free gift, a chance was all I asked
But I got a small sum of money instead.
If only, if only, if only I say
I wouldn't be where I am today.
A chance, just a chance and nothing more
The chance to pick myself and my family up to soar.
I could have done it too if given the chance
**** this feeling of being helpless.

Poverty, a disease that spreads and spreads
And I am real disappointed it has led to death.

Chance Operations are methods of generating poetry independent of the author’s will. A chance operation can be almost anything from throwing darts and rolling dice, to the ancient Chinese divination method, I-Ching, and even sophisticated computer programs. Most poems created by chance operations use some original text as their source, be it the newspaper, an encyclopedia, or a famous work of literature. The purpose of such a practice is to play against the poet’s intentions and ego, while creating unusual syntax and images. The resulting poems allow the reader to take part in producing meaning from the work.

The roots of using chance operations to generate poetry are generally traced to the Dada movement in Western Europe in the early and mid-twentieth-century, involving writers such as André Breton, Louis Aragon, Tristan Tzara, Philippe Soupault, and Paul Éluard. The Dadaists were deeply interested in the subconscious, and they believed that the mind would create associations and meaning from any text, including those generated through random selections. In one section of Tzara’s “Dada Manifesto on Feeble & Bitter Love," he offers the following instructions to make a Dadaist poem, here translated from the original French by Barbara Wright:

“Take a newspaper.
Take some scissors.
Choose from this paper an article the length you want to make your poem.
Cut out the article.
Next carefully cut out each of the words that make up this article and put them all in a bag.
Shake gently.
Next take out each cutting one after the other.
Copy conscientiously in the order in which they left the bag.
The poem will resemble you.
And there you are--an infinitely original author of charming sensibility, even though unappreciated by the ****** herd.”

The use of chance operations in contemporary poetry has been used most famously by the international avant-garde group Fluxus, poet Jackson Mac Low, and the poet and composer John Cage. A good example of a poem that was written using chance operations is Jackson Mac Low’s “Stein 100: A Feather Likeness of the Justice Chair," which also includes Mac Low’s explanation of the methods he used to compose the poem.

Did I printed my ligacy without
any wrong? I wonder'd, as my trot
what thou and I may have did?

Or! Had been just disgrac'd,
to her life;
All ever done is disillusion'd
to disincentiv'd her confidenc'd
Her heart completely disintergrat'd
by my deeds;

Had I been disobient;
leaving us, our hearts dismay?
MY ONLY CHANCE IS NOW!
Feeling, like I disdain'd her
Disempowering her completely, ever did;
Discriminating all thee care's, love's
her had to grant me;

Or! Had my face disguis'd,
My heart completely heartless'd?
Had my mind ever disclos'd, who I am?

Now thee portion of me happy with her;
Thee rest of me just in sorrow, regrets ever made,
her heart, in peaces!
And now my only chance to our waking souls;
Which watch not one another out of fear;

For our love all love of other sights controls;
And makes one little room an every where
Let her - discoverers to new worlds can offers
Let herself close to me, trust she shown before
Let us possess on one thing, love which, thee
most precious thing we'd ever possess'd in life time.

That's my only chance
Thee chance I'm to nagging
That I'm to begging
Thee only chance for me
That chance to do right by you

MY ONLY CHANCE!

She softly came into my life without her crown

To whisper, to shed light and to turn me upside down

As soft music, she spoke through her pictures

And once I saw them, I adored her features

Something is daily pulling me to her marvellous cave

To appreciate her fountain of beauty  to which I crave

She gave me something I won't lose

Even if I drank too much *****

She gave me something to keep in heart

So that we won't ever part

Something I look at and see her in mind

Then slowly move to heart to bind

Now that I am totally stunned and sedated

It is too hard for me to be eliminated.

AEDH Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven



W.B. Yeats


Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

"Aedh wishes for the Cloths of Heaven" was originally published in Yeats' collection "The Wind Among the Reeds" (John Lane, 1899).

CHINESE FOOD

In Canada, Thanksgiving is just over one week away. As an alternative to turkey, how about serving Cantonese Roast duck for Thanksgiving dinner?



Cantonese Roast Duck



By Rhonda Parkinson



Author Deh-Ta Hsiung writes: This is the duck with a shining reddish-brown skin seen hanging in the windows of a good Cantonese restaurant.

Serves 10 - 12 as a starter, or 4 to 6 as a main course. (Note: total preparation time does not include the time needed to dry the duck before cooking).

Ingredients

    One 4 1/2 lb (2 kg) oven-ready duckling
    2 teaspoons salt
    4 tablespoons maltose or honey
    1 tablespoon rice vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon red food coloring (optional0
    about 1/2 pint (280 ml) warm water
    For the Stuffing:
    1 tablespoon oil
    1 tablespoon finely chopped spring onion
    1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger root
    1 tablespoon caster sugar
    2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine (or dry sherry)
    1 tablespoon yellow bean sauce
    1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
    2 teaspoons five-spice powder

    Prep Time: 30 minutes
    Cook Time: 60 minutes

    Total Time: 90 minutes

Preparation

Clean the duck well. Remove the wing tips and the lumps of fat from inside the vent. Blanch in a *** of boiling water for a few minutes, remove and dry well, then rub the duck with salt and tie the neck tightly with string.

Make the stuffing by heating the oil in a saucepan, add all the ingredients, bring to the boil and blend well. Pour the mixture into the cavity of the duck and sew it up securely.

Dissolve the maltose or honey with vinegar and red food coloring (if using) in warm water, brush it all over the duck - give it several coatings, then hang the duck up (head down) with an S-shaped hook to dry in an airy and cool place for at least 4 - 5 hours.

To cook: preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. (200 degrees C./Gas 6). Hang the duck head down on the top rack, and place a tray of boiling water at the bottom of the oven. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F. (180 degrees C., Gas 4) after 25 minutes or so, and cook for a further 30 minutes, basting with the remaining coating mixture once or twice.

To serve: let the duck cool down a little, then remove the string and pour out the liquid stuffing to be used as gravy. Chop the duck into bite-sized pieces, then serve hot or cold with the gravy poured over it.

Skeleton in the closet



A very large, old, building was being torn down in Chicago to make room for a new skyscraper. Due to its proximity to other buildings it could not be imploded and had to be dismantled floor by floor.

While working on the 49th floor, two construction workers found a skeleton in a small closet behind the elevator shaft. They decided that they should call the police.

When the police arrived they directed them to the closet and showed them the skeleton fully clothed and standing upright. They said, "This could be Jimmy Hoffa or somebody really important."

Two days went by and the construction workers couldn't stand it any more; they had to know who they had found. They called the police and said, "We are the two guys who found the skeleton in the closet and we want to know if it was Jimmy Hoffa or somebody important."

The police said, "It's not Jimmy Hoffa, but it was somebody kind of important."

"Well, who was it?"

"The 1956 Blonde National Hide-and-Seek Champion."

Republican or Democrat?



A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am." The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a (political party)." "I am,"replied the man. "How did you know?" "Well," answered the balloonist, everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a (political party)." "I am,"replied the balloonist. "How did you know?" "Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met but, somehow, now it's my fault."



Birthday Gift

A husband went to buy a birthday gift for his wife. Some friends had been invited over that night to celebrate her fortieth, and he wanted to get something special. At the store he spotted some cute little music boxes. One blue one was playing "Happy Birthday."

Thinking they were all the same, he chose a red one and had it gift-wrapped. Later, at dinner, he gave it to his wife and asked her to open it...

When she lifted the lid, out came the tune to "The Old Gray Mare, She Ain't What She Used to Be!"



Blonde Convention



80,000 blondes meet in the Kansas City Chiefs Stadium for a "Blondes Are Not Stupid" Convention. The leader says, "We are all here today to prove to the world that blondes are not stupid. Can I have a volunteer?" A blonde gingerly works her way through the crowd and steps up to the stage. The leader asks her, "What is 15 plus 15?" After 15 or 20 seconds she says, "Eighteen!"

Obviously everyone is a little disappointed. Then 80,000 blondes start cheering, "Give her another chance! Give her another chance!" The leader says, "Well since we've gone to the trouble of getting 80,000 of you in one place and we have the world-wide press and global broadcast media here, gee, uh, I guess we can give her another chance." So he asks, "What is 5 plus 5?"

After nearly 30 seconds she eventually says, "Ninety?"

The leader is quite perplexed, looks down and just lets out a dejected sigh -- everyone is disheartened, the blonde starts crying and the 80,000 girls begin to yell and wave their hands shouting, "GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE!"

The leader, unsure whether or not he is doing more harm than damage, eventually says, "Ok! Ok! Just one more chance -- What is 2 plus 2?"

The girl closes her eyes, and after a whole minute eventually says, "Four?"

Throughout the stadium pandemonium breaks out as all 80,000 girls jump to their feet, wave their arms, stomp their feet and scream...

"GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE!"

Why not, one shot
What do you got to lose
Giving my heart a bruise
Leaving me with the blues
Leaving me so confuse

Let me turn you on girl
But you keep shutting me down
Let me turn you on girl

Let me turn you on girl
But you keep blowing me off
Let me turn you on girl
But you won’t give me a shot

Why not, one shot
Why can’t I have a chance
We could go for a dance
Why are you so against
Why can’t we have romance

Just give me one chance, one shot
One chance, one shot
Just give me one chance, one shot
One chance, one shot
Just give me one chance, one shot
One chance, one shot
Just give me one chance, one shot

But you keep shutting me down
Let me turn you on girl
But keep turning me down
Let me turn you on girl
But you keep blowing me off
Let me turn you on girl
But you won’t give me a shot
Another song here.

Steal the silver off the shining knight's armor
And you think everything's amour..but oh no

Escape all the drama and be on our way
A happy end story to it all
i'll heed to all your needs, just call

Was it because you didn't love me?

Daddy, Daddy why did you take part in creating me if you weren't going to
stay?

Daddy,  Daddy can't you see how your absence has destroyed me?

I never got the chance to be your little princess
or daddy's girl.

I never got the chance to be comforted by you because I was afraid of the monster in my closet.

I never got the chance to be annoyed with you for being over protective when I went on my first date with my first boyfriend.

I never got the chance to hear "you look beautiful" and feel a kiss on my forehead before I went off to enjoy an all nighter on prom night.

I never got the chance to proudly write your name in my English essay of people who have inspired me thus far.

I never got the chance to run into your arms and scream "Dad I did it!" after walking the grand stage of graduation.

I never got the chance to believe that I'm worthy,
beautiful,
and loved.

So many years in my life that you've missed out on has blossomed me into a woman that I hate:
struggling with so many inner demons  because you chose not to be apart of my life.

You lead me to believe that all those I love will eventually get tired and leave.

It's like you cursed me because sadly,
everyone that I've ever loved  has left.

And because of that,
I will never get the chance to feel the true meaning of "I love you"...

Because you left.
I wrote this because I always think about the effect of my life if my father would've chose to be apart of it. I cried while writing it because it means so much to me. I hope someone out there can relate to this and enjoy it. ♡

For the lucky, a million chances are granted
before their first day sleeps.
Unnoticed - mostly unspoken to the
screaming, restless, 'just wont settle' infants -
they are to be carried on the shoulders of  
protectors and handed down as time presents.

The chance to grow attached to that first teddy-bear.
The one in the attic with just one eye and
an off-white coat of the softest fur;
It holds all the heat from the nights you
nuzzled, before your imagination was clipped;

To wear your first little booties and
plod your first steps holding fingertips sky high;

To run headlong into the edge of a table
you could fit under but a day before;

To cry with your face scrunched up
and your eyes closed, mouth hanging ajar, after
falling from your bike;

And the chance to be embraced and told it will all
be okay by those same protectors, then handed another chance
with one less stabilizer.

Now let's replace the embrace with a thought -
For her;

Her protectors couldn't carry her chances.

When she awoke and filled her lungs
the chances handed down were a cold plastic bag and a
chance encounter with a passer by on the Steelstown Road:

Her chance at a first day, unnamed.

Given half a chance I would give her all of mine.

This is about a baby girl in Rathcoole in Dublin. She was less than a day old and found, alive thankfully, at the side of the road wrapped in a plastic bag.

Let's start it over again
one more talk,
one more long conversation,
one more friendship.
Please, One More Chance.

One more hug,
one more kiss,
one more romance.
Please, One More Chance.

No more crying,
no more pain,
no more heartbreaks.
Please, Give Me One More Chance.

Give me one more chance
to show how much I regret
days without you...

Give me one more chance
to show how much ...
how much I LOVE YOU.
For the only person I love ,
and the person who I will ALWAYS love.

My garden,
Can't be tampered with,
I'll get a perfect temper quick,
I do it for the hell of it,
Do it for the hell of it,
I just do it for the hell of it,
Your death,
Your too far from it,
Let it simmer,
Reminiscing all the time you spent,
With her,
Making sure your not a counterfeit,
Nobody likes fakes,
Separate the ******* from the *****,
Get it,
Finding a fix for your trip,
Take it to Hawaii,
Let it sit a bit,
I don't got no time to be maleficent,
I swear to god she was heaven sent,

If there ain't no chance in hell,
To show you what life is,
If there ain't no chance in hell,
To show you what love is,
If there ain't no chance in hell,
To show you what greed is,
If there ain't no chance in hell,
To show you what chance is,
Now take it!!!
Hum yeah whatever
