Dare I hope again,
For something brighter,
When I know it could always,
Lead to a disaster?

Dare I love,
Someone who’ll only hurt me,
Just as much as he’ll,
Make me happy?

Dare I live,
Outside boundaries,
To have no regrets,
And only days to seize?

I do dare,
If this is what life beckons—
I won’t admit defeat,
When I haven’t even begun.
