One Chance in Life

By Brenda Aceves, age 11, California


Today is another day
To try to improve again.
In life you get one chance:
Don’t try to mess it up.
We all have our ups
And downs and also frowns.

Wonderful moments and
Embarrassing ones.
Sometimes you feel mad;
Other times, happy.
Everyone has one life:
Each person is trying to survive.

Don’t try to mess with school;
It might be a really dumb move.
One day you’re a kid,
Then look back and you’re an adult.
There isn’t time to mess with life
Because you only get
One chance.
