I Would Rather

I would rather stumble a thousand times

Attempting to reach a goal,

Than to sit in a crowd In my weather-proof shroud,

A shrivelled and self-satisfied soul


I would rather be doing and daring

All of my error-filled days,

Than watching and waiting, and dying

Smug in my perfect ways.


I would rather wonder and blunder,

Stumbling blindly ahead,

Than for safety's sake

Lest I make a mistake

Be sure, be safe, be dead.
