more afraid of not flying, 
then of falling.
more afriad to hide away my feelings,
than of bawling.

more afraid to sit in slience, 
then to speak up for myself.
more afraid to sit back in slience,
than to stick up for someone else.

more afraid to close my mind, 
than to open my eyes and see.
more afraid to close my heart, 
than to let in diversity.

more afraid of not trying,
than of failing.
more afraid of not thinking,
than to let my imagination go sailing.

more afraid to settle for less,
than of not striving.
more afraid of not living, 
than of dying.
