A Poem Just For You

Hello Friends! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite poems with you–not written out, but spoken aloud, as poetry should be. πŸ™‚ “Opportunity”, by Edward Roland Sill. I learned this for English in 7th grade and have remembered it ever since. I didn’t really like it when I first learned it, but it’s had more meaning for me in recent years. This poem says you can’t wait for luck to come to you. Instead, you need to get out there and use the broken pieces you have as opportunities for success.

Watch and see for yourself!

What did you think? I hope you enjoyed that, because I really enjoyed making it. I’d like to do some more poem videos in the future. Any nominations? πŸ˜€

What is your favorite poem and why is it meaningful? If you tell me in the comments, I’ll try to learn it and do a dramatic rendition!

Now get out there and spot some opportunities buried in the sand. They’re waiting for someone like you to pick them up and drive them to victory!
