If your not sure whether the risk is worth taking, it's not worth the risk at all.

i could walk a thousand paces,
i could pass a thousand faces,
But never will i disregard
the people who have no guard.

i could walk a hundred miles,
i could pass a hundred smiles,
But never will i disregard
The people who carry a frown.

i could walk a million beats,
i could pass a million feet,
But never will i disregard
the music everyone's life makes.

i have walked those thousand paces,
passed those thousand faces,
and didn't disregard those with no shield to guard
-- but instead I was the one ignored

i have walked those hundred miles,
and passed those hundred smiles,
and the frowns i never disregarded,
-- But my frown and my smile was discarded.

i have walked a million beats,
i have passed a million feet,
and i never will forget the music of life i've heard
--but the music of my life will always be forgotten.

When i am the one ignored,
the one discarded,
the one forgotten
i will still be there to make sure the other lives
the faces, the un guarded
the smile, the frowns,
the beats, the music of life are never alone or forgotten

This piece is about anyone's walk, but specifically my own though high school so far.
