A Chance

Count my images if you can —

better yet, come look inside

me is my plea;

what you may find is something

more meaningful than your eyes

on the outside are able to see.

An inconsolable invitation made by

so many, but accepted by so few —

possibly fear is the answer, afraid that

in doing so, they may reveal themselves

to you.

How lucky are those who are willing

to make a commitment and take a stance,

to open up, to expose and be exposed —

for they have found the rewards far

greater than the chance.
