TITLE: Reckless with Boldness

So I guess you could say Iím the person to dare
ĎCause I live out my life with such Ďdevil-may Ėcareí

Iím reckless with boldness and live only for now
If you think I canít do it, well Iíll show you just how

I love jumping from airplanes at ten thousand feet
And think wrestling a crocodile is oh, such a treat

I love revving the engine as Iím banking a turn
To catch the eye of passersby when itís rubber I burn

Iíve made jumps across canyons with rocket engines a-whining
Enjoyed blowfish filets as Iím out sushi dining

Caught air in the mountains skiing fast down a slope
Turtle rolled through barrel holes was really sick and itís dope

Iíve hiked mighty, mighty mountains overlooking their tops
And crossed rope bridges over gorges with menacing drops

Yes, Iíve even fought with a few tigers like Tarzan in my day
And flashed a cape at charging bull, standing firm to shout 'OL…!'

Peddled bike across ramps pulling off gnarly tricks
Deflected stealth ninja jujitsu with precise lethal kicks

Iíve stared down a hooded cobra and a python Iíve fought
Swam with jellyfish all around me and deadly shark have I caught

And there is nothing Iím afraid of, there is nothing I wonít try
But, no, oh, wait a minuteÖĎcause thatís just one big lie

You seeÖ
Iíd rather be out fighting the Heavyweight Champion of the World
A three round fight with all my might
Than having my hair curled.

Yes, Iíd rather wrestle a Ďgator or a great big old brown bear
Out in the pond, or on my lawn
Than tackling heels to wear

And Iíd rather shoot out of a cannon or a fire suit Iíd don
To help me walk through fiery flames
Than fight to get pantyhose on

So, although I live near fearless, one day I may face my fear
Of perfume sprays and pink bouquets and staring in the mirror.

Yeah, Iíll go ahead and say it, although itís a little hard to admit
That if anything really scares me
Being a girly-girl is really it!

Oh I love this! What a delightful story. I could feel the adrenaline surging off the page. I think the ending is perfect.

This was an interesting read, I couldn't figure it out at first. Then with the curlers and panty hose, I kind of caught on...nicely done. I enjoyed this.

God Bless~

Delightful!

I'm not sure how appropriate it is for a male to comment in any sympathetic tones, but my testosteron-imy is simply to say that I enjoyed the twist at the end.

A catchy and creative poem with mild humor! Well done on a nicely written piece and an enjoyable read.

Ha! I was caught off guard by the ending. Having raised four daughters, I found it a delightful read. Great writing. God bless!
