Look, leap, live.

I was always told to weigh things well,
before I took a step, big or small.
'Look before you leap' was so inbred,
I was cautious to leap, lest I fall.
Sound advice, that any can take,
a recipe to live life by,
With care and caution you could do well,
till its time for you die.
To look at every pro and con,
before I made up my mind,
to look and read between the lines,
before I anything signed.
To consider all that was possible,
to think of the probable,
to ponder what could have been,
and what may be applicable.
So sound was every step I took,
it seemed to be resonate,
think, think and think again
lest you get it wrong and the future detonate.
The more closely I looked at things,
the more the flaws appeared,
things that at first seemed like adventure,
became monsters to be feared.
Oh not that it was bad advice,
because it did lead to a safer day,
while others stumbled and faltered through,
I had things go exactly my way.
Sometimes though when I catch a glimpse,
of the lost forks in the way,
I wonder if the monsters lurking there,
might have been better vanquished anyway.
The fights might have been dangerous
and at first I might have lacked the skills,
but once I got the hang of it,
it may have been full of thrills.
Good advice, it may be to look,
before your every leap,
but for adventure and to slay monsters along the way,
do not look at every pro and con too deep!!
