Playing It Safe

Play it safe?
On what field of endeavor,
Could I possibly do that?

From the moment I was made aware...
Of restrictions and limits.
Comparisons and statistics...
Enforced upon my receptive mind,
Was a difference I dealt with!

I found that playing it safe,
Would never be my option!
And that,
I was taught...
By others who thought,
It 'had' to be brought to my attention!
Early.
As I began my first steps,
Upon a path...
Sometimes still feels threatened.

And with 'that' successfully done...
With ambitions intact.
I prepared myself to face obstacles.
And prayed for assistance,
When confronted by challenges...
Of all kinds that would come to attack,
From an assortment of programmed minds.
