risk being right, even when peace

is within reach, if only you’d let go of what you know —

risk being right

why? because when peace is cheap

and you sell out for a good night’s sleep

you will find

something akin to doubt creeping in, stealing

your easily won peace and good night’s


THIS POEM APPEARS IN MY BOOK “Outside the Fairy Tale”
Available on Amazon

When we risk being right, sticking to our guns in gentle, but firm kind of way, we risk becoming known as a person with convictions. Someone not easily defeated, or swayed to take the easier path. But someone with a destination. A goal. Someone who’s had a glimpse of glory and is willing to risk to get there.
