Flirting with Danger*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr



CDXIV ~> Flirting with Danger*

CDXIV ~> Flirting with Danger*
(Opus414 ~> Flirting with Danger)
Turning ambitions into achievements
Proves easier contemplated than done.
It takes demolishing impediments
One after another till all are gone
Like aging friends departing one by one:
You show up for your own appointed time
Nor asking for reason, rhythm, or rhyme!
Dive not into a swimming pool gone dry
No matter how good a swimmer you are
The pull of gravity you can’t defy;
Nor limit the damage to a light scar
Regardless of how brightly shines your star:
Dominoes falling in a dry whirlpool
Showcase fringes of foreboding trouble!
Braving the rapids for work or leisure,
Hang gliding to confront your fears of height,
You flirt with danger to probe the measure
Of how you’re willing and able to fight
To vanquish adversity out of sight:
Look before you leap proves a good motto;
Be you in the shoals or in the grotto!
