Chance or Choice?


Life is about chance
Life is about choice
What if I’m your chance
But you’re not my choice?

Things in life happen either by chance or by choice

When life’s chance
Brings you before a choice
Don’t take a chance
Listen to your inner voice

You’re my choice
My only choice
I go around in circles
And you’re still my choice

Met you by chance
And you were my choice
I was your chance
But why not your choice?

I make one step ahead
And two steps behind
Thought I was over you
But you’re still on my mind

    To Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi: I think there is something wrong with the poem too. I believe it is that the rhythm and choice of words are confusing. No Offense Cece Lamberts....0_0 (Report) Reply

    Lovely :) such a powerful theme! One all humans can relate to... that, in my opinion, is what makes truly great poetry. (Report) Reply

    What a thoughtful linguistic invention! The two words, 'Chance' and 'Choice' have equal number of letters, sounds
    and one syllable each. You met me by chance but don't make me your choice-Around this idea, you have built this poem. Beautiful. (Report) Reply

    I loved this one. Despite having opportunities by chance, it's by choice we take advantage of them. (Report) Reply

    A pleasant, delightful read. Nice way to frame your good friends oberservation. Opportunities missed, opportunities taken. Sometimes just a matter of seconds to be regretted or forgotten. Gives us poets a lot to think and write about. (Report) Reply

    C hance and Choice can coincide
    E mpowering emotive streams
    C hannelling empathy which seems
    E nergized as side by side
    L inks' stimulations undenied
    A dvance to tenderness that dreams
    M ay reinforce, on course, as gleams
    B eauty's truth, Truth's beauty - tide
    E nchanting, open, bona fide,
    R ecognized where two as team
    T aste harmony, tune into beam
    S erene, all conflict laid aside.
    CEntral aspirations shared
    CEments implicit joys prepared. (Report) Reply
