A young girl thinks of all the possibilities.
I Might

The day is ripe with opportunity;
I might skip school, pick flowers, climb a tree.

The sun is shining, air is bright and clear.
I might go to the lake, sit on the pier.

What wonders wait before me in the woods?
I might think more of ‘coulds’ instead of ‘shoulds’.

And when I’m hungry from adventures far,
I might sneak home, grab cookies from the jar.

My mind is filled with thoughts I can’t resist;
I might hold hands with Bobby, steal a kiss.

But tempted though I am, I know what’s right.
I also know what’s wrong… but still I might.

Written for Day 6 of the "Invalid Item activity. I chose the Heroic Couplet.

Form: Couplet

The couplet is a fun and quick form formed by two-line stanzas. Both lines in the stanza must rhyme, and the lines can be as short or as long as you'd like, but consistency helps. Your poem must include at least 4 stanzas of couplets, but no more than 12.) - A Heroic Couplet is a couplet written in iambic meter, and it also acceptable for this challenge!
