We look at missed opportunities in the form of forks in the road and plane tickets never booked, but what about the ones under our noses? The meals never made with the ingredients in the fridge, the conversations never had even though they were acted out so many times in one's head, the outfits never worn that remained on vision boards and magazine spreads. We continue on, missing what is beside us, in front of us, or passing by as we walk to work and school and everything in between. At least acknowledge what you're missing.
I hope you enjoyed this poem! I try to take advantage of all the opportunities granted to me, and although it can be overwhelming taking on larger opportunities such as activities and jobs and such, there are so many little ones that are just fun experiences waiting to be had.
