Go Ahead and Risk

Spread the love

Girl-Thinking-1920x1408

If fruit be on a limb – why not risk and reach?
We might as well fall flat than slip backwards again.
Life lived in excess, still dare and continue – dream
For fear of being choked – does one refuse to eat?

We might as well fall flat than slip backwards again.
When faced with risk – consider two paths;
To kindle or to restrain.

Life lived in excess, still dare and continue – dream
In dreams we leave our woes behind;
Whatever we wish – we keep.

For fear of being choked – does one refuse to eat?
The music though not immortal;
The world has made it sweet.

  1. Interesting trimeric dip into philosophy. One must drive & even live defensively, & yet we must face fear, & reach beyond our grasp, or we’ll just take up empty space & never venture out of an illusion we have of a safe zone. Your last stanza is killer.

  3. Yes, sometimes we really have to go out on a limb and reach for what we want. We definitely do have to take some risks to really like. Nice Trimeric, Sanaa.

  4. Although rhyming is not a requirement for this form, I think that having the last stanza’s first and last lines rhyme gave this a wonderful punch. Bravo!!

  5. What a great line: “For fear of being choked – does one refuse to eat?”…good point! Life is full of choices and challenges…to choose nothing makes for a bland life.

  6. Oh we must dare sometimes, the tantalizing sweetness or just hunger make us combing out a limb… Alas plain greed can be rage reason too, so we need some carefulness as well.

  7. Taking risks is sometimes what keeps life interesting and gives us a sense of aliveness. I guess it’s finding that fine line between taking a risk and being downright foolhardy.

  8. Such introspective questions but mankind has that nature to explore one step further than safety. By doing so has achieved marvelous things. Dare we take that risk? Yes even we writers do!

  11. What a convincing plea for risk taking and living a full life. No, I never refuse to eat “for fear of choking.” Fine choice of repeated lines.

  12. This reminds me of that song, “The Rose”. “The soul afraid of dying that never learns to live…” Taking risks can become a life long habit, or not.
