In a fear-based, failure-averse culture,
people will consciously or unconsciously avoid risk.
They will seek instead to repeat something safe
that’s been good enough in the past.

by being given tasks they can’t do
and by parents,
afraid of one more mistake,
sticking to something that barely works,
and not breathing into the possibility
of real miracles
