Opportunity

Every word that we speak
Every thought we hold back
Every action we do
Sets indelible tracks
And marks that are etched
On the minds and the hearts
Of those we hold dear
Plus those set apart
So that at the end
When we breathe our last breath
We’ll be sure that our legacy
Will survive past our death
So we’ll know that our life
Has been lived; no regret
With no shame nor missed chance
As none should forget
That an olive branch offered
May be the last that we see
If we don’t accept it with honour
And integrity
And that opportunity wasted
Is washed away in our tears
So make the most of your life
And enjoy every year
