I Dare Say

To fear is to be smart,
To feel is to be foolish,
To climb a castle’s stony rampart,
I humbly admonish.

What is bravery,
If not reckless?
An act of sheer folly,
Dare I be so careless?

Would I dare climb only to fall?
Would I dare love only to hurt?
A mere sweet for a tussle,
And dirt on my skirt?

To dare is to die,
To think is to live,
Feel free to show a smile full of wry,
For logic is too elusive.

 

I love prompts!

Daring
