Chances

If ever before I was told that come today, we will not set eyes again

I will forever deny that.
But the truth of life is that the future never reveals itself,
And the chances in life are that some might not hold on.

He lived a life, full of determination and hope
That come one day, he will set the caged birds free
But the truth of life is that the future never reveals itself,
And the chances in life are that some might not hold on.

He gathered the needed knowledge and earned all the medals of a real soldier
But the chances in life are that some might not leave to their dreams.

It all came, that unpredicted day,
That calm twelfth night of the year,
That moment, surprising to all, it just happened,
And the hard-toiled dreams faltered,
He came to live but life never permitted him to be,
That moment, that solemn twelfth month, came to mark the unceremonious erection of his tomb, the tomb that remained a ghost to all to date.
And that day, that moment, was when I realized that the chances in life are that some might not hold on.
But hopefully, a day will come when dreams will certainly win
And the chances will be that some will truly hold on.
