Living Against the Odds

picture credit:

When you live against the odds,
general sanction isn’t high
but you’ll get the chance to chase
every dream that you desire.
Thrills that make your heartbeat race,
put goose bumps onto your skin,
are worth so much more than winning
every dime store prize life brings.
And you may not find the rainbow
nor the picture perfect life,
but you may just find another
soul who’s heart beats just like mine...


  1. Love it . . . . and it sort of gives one hope of good things to come , , , , , :) Eddie

  2. That's lovely. Sometimes we have to chase those dreams and feel the goose bumps, otherwise we never experience the highs of life.

  5. "another soul, who's heart beats just like mine".
    This gave me a warm, happy feeling.

  6. I found a soul whose heartbeats just like yours. You. Living against the odds is about the only way to keep it somewhat interesting.

  7. yes, you might...that is part of the journey...
    and the part i love...the people i will meet along the way
    and they enrich life more than most dreams....
