Poems and Poetry: Take Some Risk

Updated on March 29, 2012

Take Some Risk

He rushed into his plans eagerly

Throwing caution to the wind

He backhanded fear knowing

That the greatest risk is not taking

Risk; taking too much precautions

And never facing failures and mistakes

Forgetting that human beings are

Like tea bag which are of no use

Until they’ve been through hot water

Unless you enter the beehive

You can’t take honey

Men who are lazy take refuge

In drugs and religion

However, you should not take suicidal

Risk that any sane human can see

From kilometers away.

      I like that line "he backhanded fear..." We all need to backhand fear from time to time, some of us more often than others. Great poem with some strong push.
