Then I Dare

Too often I stand.

So very still.

Not taking a chance.

Not believing.

Not daring.

Not trusting.


It’s there,

That thing.


Basketball. Shoot. Don't shoot. No chance.

I remain

Where I am

No courage

No brass.

Still as I can be.

For as long as I can remain.

Until no longer

Dare I not




I dare.

Take the shot. Take the chance. Move.

  1. You make an excellent case against being reckless with our aim! A little thought and waiting can be a good thing and doesn’t mean we aren’t still daring. I read a lot between your ones…I think I need this. 🙂
