''Fear of Falling''

I can't guarantee you the race will be won
and that you'll always stay ahead of the pack
But the race never ends for the one who endures
so rest assured you can always come back

I can't guarantee you the market won't dip
or that your stock won't take a turn for the worse
But good plans for investing sell short and buy long
and makes blessing from what others call curse

I can't guarantee you we'll always be friends
or that we'll always see things eye to eye
So just savor the good and hold our memories safe
even if at some time comes goodbye

I can't guarantee you they'll always look up
or your pedestal won't tip and then tumble
But respect is immune to life's rises and falls
for the person who always stays humble

I can't guarantee you that power persists
unlike Rome things can fall in a day
But lucky's the man who from pieces rebuilds
for to misfortune he never falls prey

I can't guarantee you there'll never be pain
or that your heart won't break if you fall
But I do know it's better to love fully and lose
than half-hearted or never at all

No there's no guarantee that you won't come up short
or that your dreams will come true to your plans
But you learn, laugh and love on the safe side of the fall
where control's squarely back in your hands

Physically falling. Falling down. Friendships that fall away. Falling behind. Having a falling out. Plans that fall through. Falling flat. Falling short. Falling from grace. Even falling in love. It seems everyone at one time has a fear of falling. The safe side of the fall and true success is not being able to say "I never fell", but that "I took a leap and learned, loved, laughed and I lasted. Don't fear the fall, my friend.

P.S. Please help me set up my National Tour. If you are in certain key cities and wish to help organize a Passion Prophet workshop (complete with Life Rhyme reading and discussion)in your area, check out My blog and read "Setting up your Own National Tour" to help and make money doing it!
