A Little Risk

Without a little risk sometimes
And the heart for gamble, there is no dream,
Hypnotize your own nerves out of fear and doubt
Learn to live the rest of your whole life without
Ever touch, revealing those sacred, sweet secrets at core
Before the wildly flourishing plumes of sunset
Consumes the very light from our eyes and the dyes
Of midnight purples come to laugh at our bioluminescent discs
Without a little risk, you play it safe but on someone else's terms
Or perhaps it was only a momentary pause or lapse
The kind of day when something snaps and senses play apart
The birds are singing like wind chimes
Children rehearsing pantomimes
No nickels turning into dimes
Without a little risk sometimes

Oh I love the ending rhymes. In all a very nice read for me. I think nothing good is realized without gamble or risk. A scientist will try every option available to find an answer. We fail and then try again. Although man is the only animal that will try something a second time in hope of another outcome.
