Calculated Risks

By Neal Morrison Jr, Army

Writing Type: Poem

By Neal C. Morrison, Jr.

VA Medical Center--Hampton, VA

Opportunity and chances are unlimited;

No opportunity comes without risk.

You must take a chance 
if you want to advance;

Risk is what life is all about.

There are no guarantees;

If you want the opportunity, 
you must take the risk.

If you get knocked down, get up; 
if you fail, try again.

If it doesn't work, try a different approach;

Failure is nothing more than a lesson.

If you don't concede, if you don't give up,

You are never defeated.

Learn from your mistakes; 

Turn your failures into success.

Your destiny awaits you

Only if you have courage;

If you’re not afraid to take a risk,

Life is filled with opportunities.

If you take a risk, the payoff is great,

For only the winner, takes it all.

This is the showdown.

Do you have what it takes

To step forward and claim your prize?
