A Prayer

PRAYER FOR TAKINGS RISKS


To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken
because the greatest hazard is to risk nothing.
Those who risk,
Do nothing,
Have nothing,
And are nothing,
They may avoid suffering and sorrow,
But they simply cannot learn,
feel,change,grow,love,live.
Chained by their own fears,
they are slaves:
They have forfeited freedom.
Only a person who risk is free. Amen.
