Take a risk

Take a chance, do and dare child.
Consider the thrills ahead.
Take a chance, girl, do and dare.
Ignore the obvious.
If we never try how will we ever know?
Failure is just the price of discovery.
To feel the earth trembling 
You have to make changes.
There are setbacks in any future choice,
It’s the Law of Communicating Vessels.
Don’t be an over-cautious generation.
Choose risk – it’s the only way to fly.
