If I Weren't Afraid
If I weren’t afraid, I’d do a zany thing -
something that would give my life a little zing.
Inside a private plane, I’d be flown up so high,
then step into the blue and dive into vast sky!
A parachute I’d wear - of course - upon my back.
I’d do this wondrous thing, but guts for it I lack!
I know it would be freeing and such a thrill for me.
No risk-taker am I though, so it shall never be!
