What would you do if you knew you wouldn't fall?
I saw this question on one of my campers' gmail chat message. It made me think. And I'm still thinking about it.
What would I do if I knew that I wouldn't fall?
What dreams in my heart have I not let sprout?
What would I learn if I had the courage to try?
What would I say if I knew it would be heard?
What would I become if I thought I could?
What would I build if I knew it would last?
Then what is the risk? What is the fear?
What are the doubts between me and there?
The fear is I'm small, incapable, and slow.
The risks maybe measured from sky to ground!
And doubts only multiply the wind within.
But what use is a dream if it never sprouts?
What shelved wisdom has saved a life?
What thought unspoken changed the world?
What old oak grew strong without wind?
What doubt built a better brick then hope?
