Fear is a strange anomaly...

for it’s certain we’ll never prevail

If we refuse to take a chance 

for fear that we might fail.


It’s true when we come upon a river bank

It would be safer if we stay...

for jumping in will get us wet

and we’ll face hazards along the way.


And there’s a chance if we jump in

we’ll fail miserably...


But there’s an equal chance, that same river,

will lead us to the sea.


When you’re afraid of the unknown

here’s where to begin:

Stand on the edge...

take a deep breath

and tell yourself,


“Look Out! I’m divin’ in.”
