My comfort zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn’t fail,
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail,
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before,
But 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 things like a tight tummy and such,
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.

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

If you’re in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt,
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true,
Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!
