Risk sits in twisted conflict

With safe secured stability

She elicits wondrous opportunity

And delicious possibility

Permitting dreams to germinate

To flourish

To navigate the drudgery

Encouraging voyage and discovery

With impeccable credentials

Risk sits twitching, fidgeting

Coaxing talent, desire, potential

Drawing transformation from the incremental

From the sedentary, the silent, the uneventful

Squeezing life from the lifeless

Light from the lightless

Hope from the hopeless

And love from the sadness

Of tears

Risk sits

Befittingly kissing the fiction of fear
