I would rather stumble

   I would rather stumble a thousand times
   Attempting to reach a goal,
   Than to sit in a crowd
   In my weather-proof shroud,
   A shriveled and self-satisfied soul
   I would rather be doing and daring
   All of my error-filled days,
   Than watching, and waiting, and dying,
   Smug in my perfect ways.
   I would rather wonder and blunder,
   Stumbling blindly ahead,
   Than for safety's sake
   Lest I make a mistake,
   Be sure, be safe, be dead.
