so never learn the joys that linger near
and miss the thrill with caution to pursue
the growth discovered in a wider sphere.
Some fear the known and set their limits close
so never find the paths that set one free
and settle for the commons that engross

Some fear their fears and boldly push ahead
so always have more possibilities
and seize the opportunities to spread
the wonders of adventure as they please.
Hold fast each nurturing relationship
And in the buddings all temptations nip.
