Have you ever taken a punt and chanced it all?
Walked a tight-rope when you knew you could fall?
Crossed the road when the sign said Don't Walk?
Laughed out loud when you've been told not to talk?
Have you ever been in free fall and grabbed a hand hold by luck?
Found a way out when everybody else was stuck?
Gambled and lost it all on the sway of the breeze?
Come back from disaster with nothing but ease?
Have you ever tried something knowing you could fail?
Defended your position against those beyond the pale?
Have you ever been beaten and stood tall in spite of the pain?
Was it fun? Did you enjoy it? Would you do it again?
I have and it was; these risks make life worth living
When you see me don't assume I'm beaten or I'll ever give in.
