Sonnet 4

None but you can stem the fate that’s yours
or make it bloom. You may think it is wise
to let the reckless pass through open doors
to tempting dangers. But, here wisdom lies.
If you have life, there is no risk in living;
If you have hope, you’ll need no luck at all;
If you’ve a heart, your happiness is in giving;
If you’ve a dream, then wake up to its call
or you could wait, as in a lonely grave,
for dawn that never comes, an endless night
of rotting soul you did not dare to save.
So seize your fate, and join the merry fight.
Treat life as war, or peace will not be found
until they lay you, coward, underground.
