BECAUSE THESE THINGS MUST BE DONE

I will create…

the song the minstrel never sang,
the love the lovers never found,
the battle the warrior never fought.

The adventure missed because
of a fear that could not
be faced.

The beauty and sweet scent of an unopened rose lost
in early frost.

The Eurasian child not born because
her father feared
to venture afar.

The savage thrill of riding the wild stallion not mounted because
no one thought
he could be caught.

Come with me and…
We will climb the mountain not there;
We will explore the island not discovered;
We will love the Princess not born;
We will best the monster not created;
Because these things must be done.

These things will I do; they are possible when…
My mind knows no bounds
and my body need not follow;
Because…the beauty and adventure
exist forever within myself.
…Me
