In This World of Paradox

May 16, 2019

 

 

I will risk too much

because enough is

no longer enough

 

I will risk too much

because the expectation

is that I won’t

 

I will risk too much

because I have both

everything and nothing to lose

 

I will risk too much

not because it is what I want to do 

it is what I have to do

 

I will risk too much

because not doing so is

complacency, silence, and death

 

I will risk too much

because there is no other choice

if I am to have any choice at all

 

I will risk too much

because I currently have

the freedom and privilege to do so

 

I will risk too much

because bravery can

only be born of fear

 

I will risk too much

because if I don’t

no one will

 

In this world, paradox

is a reason for hope, and

 

I will risk too much

because this is the place of churning

where the new world will be born, and

 

I am its midwife, mother, and child
