Second Chance

by lynnkennison

Metal battered

Crushed and shattered

The earth’s embrace

Upon your face

No memory of

Your prior events

But now you’re given

A second chance

You see the world

Through childlike eyes

Vibrant view

A butterfly

Fate collided into you

Brought you clarity

Your soul anew

In this life

You are not done

A second chance

Your way comes


For my mom who’s been blessed with a second chance this week.

Every day is gift!
