I Dance With Chances

I dance with chances
Never leaving the the floor
Evolving my steps
Flowing with the music

They all move on
No more laughter and martinis
Business suits and cell phones
Diamond studded dreams

They work for stability
I dance with chances

Misguided little girl
Lost on a path to nowhere
Stumbling through mistakes
To an unknown place

They strive for perfection
I dance with chances

Will I ever succeed with lofty dreams?
Or have I already?
No wonderful achievements
No life-changing events

They take a sure thing
I dance with chances

Poor lady of the estate
All the things that do her no good
Ambition gets you everytime
Greed finishes you off

Success is never guaranteed
I dance with chances



------------------
"Hallelujah, Heaven's white rose,
The doors you open...I just can't close..."

a very pleasantly unique spin on something that has been addressed too many times to count,

Will I ever succeed with lofty dreams?
Or have I already?
No wonderful achievements
No life-changing events


this really grabbed me, cause sometimes I look around and say to myself, 'is this it?'

I like the repitition, BC, you are such a lyricist, you have no idea how skilled you are at it.
this is the better way to live, I was going to say something similar to what Wanderer did; it's far better than the frustration of being careful.
great poem!
