on the wings of a dare

no cloud ever ruled the sky 
without first defying the sun
no flower ever bloomed
without breaking out of the seed
no baby chick ever hatched
without daring to leave the shell

no artist created a masterpiece
without facing a blank canvas first
no climber ever scaled the peak
still clinging to the valley floor
no answer has ever been right
before risking it might be wrong

we all feel fear

in cowardice, we wither 
scared to fail 
in courage, we thrive 
bravely daring to succeed
