Braving the Odds*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr

DXXII ~> Braving the Odds*
(Opus522 ~> Braving the Odds)
(1)
Lonely are the brave, told augurs of old–
Warning all, idealize not the island;
It’s fraught with risks awesomely manifold;
Compared to what threatens the nearby strand,
They’re far too rambunctious to countermand:
If you want to keep your watch much longer,
Focus on how to reduce the danger!
(2)
It helps when someone else watches your back
While taking care of what you need to do;
It does not pay to worry what you lack;
Beyond your knowing what you need to know,
Looms there the going where you need to go:
Be not quick to reject the helping hand
Good deeds are done by those who understand!
(3)
Re-calibrate the trespass you unleash
Regardless that the odds you are braving,
Foreclose the options you detest to miss;
Grieving, known to mourn a lease on giving;
Should embrace excess peace from forgiving:
The neck you save next time might be your own
Make sure that chance you never keep unknown!
