We fear the unknown,
perhaps more than we fear anything else,
and yet we are, at heart, adventurers.

that we must know in our hearts
that our adventure is no more than a child's game.
Perhaps we hope that the unknown
is like the darkness of a cave
and that the brief light of our adventurer's candle
can illuminate the entire cave.
Nonetheless, the path of the adventurer
is a path of joy, while the way of fear is one of suffering.

and ready to play again.
