To make a difference in the world, you have to be different from the world.


I was afraid to fall

So I did not fly

I was afraid to search

And come up dry.

I was afraid to fail

So I did not try

I was afraid of truth

So I told a lie.

I was afraid to lose

So I did not give

I was afraid to die

So I did not live.


The author's comments:
This is to show how stupid it is to not do something just because you are afraid to do it. You cannot truly live until you have risked dying. That is what it means to be brave.
