Risk and Reward

What do you see #41 image prompt:

Hidden Soul
Afraid of this world
Blending in
Watching dreams go by
As fear reigns supreme

No risk, no reward
But in times such as these
Caution we must take

For while safety is an illusion
Care is its contingency

So go forth hidden one
Explore your cornucopia of possibilities
Go forth
And go with care

  5. So beautifully interwoven, Jude. Fear may have caused many to let their dreams pass them by. We must exercise caution while taking risks. Without risks, there can be no reward. Beautifully penned, Jude. I loved this

    This is really true, never thought about it really: “safety is an illusion”. Still, it means so much to us to feel that safety. Good post as always! You always make me think!
