Risk

To laugh is to risk appearing the fool,

to weep is to risk being called sentimental,

to reach out to another is to risk involvement,

to expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self,

to place your ideas your dreams in front of a crowd is to risk being called naive,

to try is to risk failure,

to live is to risk dying.

But the greatest risk in life,

is to risk nothing.

The person who risks nothing,

does nothing,

has nothing,

and becomes nothing,

only the person who risks it all,

if truly free.
