no rain cloud ever ruled the sky
without first defying the sun
no flower ever bloomed
without daring to break the seed
no baby chick was ever born
without daring to leave the shell
no painter ever achieved a masterpiece
without facing a blank canvas first
no climber ever viewed the top of Everest
without leaving the safety of the ground floor
no answer has ever been right
before risking it might be wrong
no happiness has ever been gained
without memories of pain being lost
the first I love you said to a friend
was given before confirmed by the other
no lovers’ lips ever touched
without daring the space in between
weak individuals dare not fail
great individuals dare succeed
