It’s Not Safe

The rarity of greatness

can be explained and found

in the individuals

who live life safe and sound

The mind deserves excitement

not fear and tightness

but he who wants security

might not like this

for excitement needs

chance takers,

risk takers,

and dreamers

but the cautious man

won’t at all be too eager

The perception is this,

it’s crazy to risk,

but think of all the opportunities

that you surely miss

they think of risking as dumb

and those who do, as gall

but the craziest risk

is not risking at all

nothing is safe anymore,

it’s not safe to be careful

Go ahead, chase your dreams

come on, I dare you
