Opportunity

I look to lofty mountain peaks
Silhouetted in the starry sky
But when its walls I near to be
I shy to touch and fear to climb
Such beauty I imagine at its Everest
Such warmth basking close to the sun
But as I stroll past its borders
I pass by
And run
God paves the path in rose petals
With every blessed sign
But I take the fork, hands over my eyes
In the end, I suppose, too scared to try

with
every breath and
every step I blow on the dice
and pray as I make this attempt for I
an unrefined commoner with only modest
qualities make it at great disadvantage
I gamble but yet I am not the
one I just rolled that
way
