Risk

To drive a car is to risk having a wreck
To apply for a job is to risk not being hired
To try out for a play is to risk not getting the part
To enter college is to risk flunking out
To smile is to risk that no one will smile back
To love is to risk rejection and hurt
To speak is to risk that no one will listen
To hope is to risk despair
To dream is to risk appearing the fool
To climb is to risk falling back down
