Friday Poetry Word - Dare

Choose to take a dare
Instead of a truth,
Even though you fear,
It may be uncouth.

This childhood game
Adults like to play,
But isn’t the same,
Unlike children’s way.

Challenges are hard
When comfort is gone,
Emotions on guard,
Try to remain strong.

Yet relish the test
Of not holding back,
Shocked at the request,
Smile, remain intact.
