Unless We Dare

Share

Happy Friday, folks!  Here’s a poem by Amelia Earhart that is inspiring me today.  What are you inspired to dare this weekend?

Amelia-Earhart

Courage is the price that
Life exacts for granting peace.

The soul that knows it not,
Knows no release from little things:
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear,
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear the sound of wings.

Nor can life grant us boon of living, compensate
For dull gray ugliness and pregnant hate
Unless we dare
The soul’s dominion.
Each time we make a choice, we pay
With courage to behold the resistless day,
And count it fair.

~Amelia Earhart
