I wonder should I leap & should I take a chance?
I see my heart askew & look at risk askance.
I trust not Lady Luck when it comes to falling.
History proves she’s treated me so appalling.
I can’t shy away from all just to shun the bad.
Yet I won’t be blind & find that I have been had.
Giving up is not a choice or else what’s the point?
Though, life is not just two straight lines finding their joint.
In the end I’ll draw my path cautious of terrain.
I’ll hope the love I chance is worth its innate pain.
