Courageous Chance and Challenge

Don’t fail me

ceaseless spirit

of chance and challenge

of quick decisiveness

and courage in moments of fear

I’ve already lost the golden fires

of blazing brashness

in favor of silent serenity

of friends who are fearless for me

and I am not afraid

But now I feel

the sudden gust of the vacuum

of the breezeless space of a mind alone

among itself and no one else

fearless minds hidden by flames

of courage I cannot reach

Don’t fail me,



-yours and mine-

give me the chance

of courageous challenge
