Being Given the New, Tarnishes the Old

You are given the chance

At something better

It is thrust upon you

You are forced into the chance

And when you take it

People look at you

Telling you how lucky you are

When really

All you want

Is your old life back

.

That time

When life was so much simpler

When it seemed you had it all

Where here you see

You truly had nothing

.

You used to be happy

Thinking you were the most lucky person in the world

Now

In the so called better land

You see so many more choices

So many more opportunities

So many chances that can never be yours

Could never be yours

Even if

You had your old life back
