June, 2013 Poem of the Month, “An Opportunity”

Have a great month and remember the 7th Annual Todd Bates Football Skills Camp is July 6th! Go to Camp Info for additional information.

“An Opportunity”

People look for a window or a door,
It hurts their stomach when they realize they were promised so much more.
Some doors lead to closets and many windows lead outside.
Sometimes we are forced to go out blind and go through life with no outlines.

We travel the road and carry the load, just to get a glance.
We must unravel our code and get in our mode, because we are willing to take a chance.
Although opportunities come seldom,
The trouble and the struggles are welcome.

Through your trials smile because you know that they are soon to be,
Not a lot, just a shot, and an opportunity.
