Something Better

Opportunity knocks,

And I turn my back.


Not into playing

Any high-strung games.


Not into risking

My meager employment.


Not into hob-knobbing

With those that want to show-off.


So when opportunity comes

My humble way,


I say no, thank you,

Perhaps another day.

    1. Thanks, Paula. I guess I’m glad with my stable life, even if things aren’t ideal. At least I don’t have any more problems. Thanks for your comments.
