To Take A Risk

To laugh is to risk appearing the fool
To weep is to risk appearing vulnerable
To reach out for another is to risk involvement
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your True self

To love is to risk not being loved in return
To live is to risk dying
To hope is to risk despair
To try is to risk failure

But risks must be taken
Because the greatest tragedy in life
Is to risk nothing
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing And is but a shadow of their True self

They may avoid suffering and sorrow
But so shall they avoid growth, change, love and life
Chained by their certitudes, they are but a slave
They have forfeited their freedom

Only the person who risks is truly free
Dare to risk and be free to laugh, live and
Love as you were meant to
When you believe in something with all you have

When you dream of what you truly want
With all your heart
You have no idea what you can achieve
