"May you live every day of your life" - Jonathan Swift

I tried to tight walk ore the ocean
I missed the sharks painful bites
But right before I got to land then
Pop,pop, pop went my line

"No fear", said I, "The net will catch me"
Down upon it, then I fell
Then, rip,rip, rip went the net and
Look out! Here come the sharks! O help!

The author's comments:
"This is about stepping out and taking a chance, knowing that if you fail you will have something to catch you. Then you do fail.. So you go to the one thing that you can trust.. And that fails you too."
