The Comfort Zone



I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn't fail.
The same four walls and busy work were really more like jail.
I longed for so much to do the things I'd never done before.
But I stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.

I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much;
I said I didn't care for diamonds, cars and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for some small victory of my own.

I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win,
So I stepped outside my comfort zone to let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye, closed and locked the door.

If you are in your comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all others were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true,
So greet your future with a smile- success is there for you!
