Opurtunity - Poem by Abigail Hauschild

Loss it seems is the worst kind of sorrow
Loss of a dream
Loss of a person
But what of the loss of opportunity
Opportunity for a dream
Opportunity for time with a person
Can not having the chance of loss
Be worse than loss itself
More prominent
More painful
An aching sense that if only you’d had the chance
You would at least have memories
Would it matter as long as you could remember
Loss it seems is the worse kind of sorrow
But worse still is the loss of opportunity

    Opportunities are lost mostly because people are ill prepared to take advantage of them. A nice piece of poetry written with insight. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    How very true. They say that regret can be the worst sort of thing that you have, but regret of missed opportunities can be even worse. However if you take the ones with greatest reward to you, you can minimise this by quite a bit. Stay strong (Report) Reply
