(If this is your first time on this site, you may want to begin with "Are You Prepared For Success?" [Introduction])
If you are a regular reader of my Empowerment Process please read the Section II version of this poem first; then read this version.
I know when I laugh I risk appearing the fool.
I know when I weep I risk appearing un-cool.
I risk getting involved when, to another I reach out.
When expressing myself there's the risk of self-doubt.
I risk their loss, when my ideas, I state;
When pursuing my dreams, I risk the same fate.
To hope…there is always the risk of despair,
But to try is to see that there's success out there.
To love is to risk not being loved in return,
But without risk I can't change, I can't live, I can't learn.
Not to risk I may avoid any suffering, but I know
To risk is to live and to feel and to grow.
The greatest hazard in life, and the risk that I see,
Is to risk nothing then nothing is me.
Without risk I can't love I can't live, I can't be.
I will take the risks so that I can truly be free.
I strongly suggest that you write down your immediate reaction, after passionately reading this poem. • What risks will you now take? • When you take these risks, what is it that you truly risk?
