Poem by Anonymos



I used to have a comfort zone

where I knew I couldn’t fail,

The same four walls of busy work

were really more like a jail


I longed 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 things

like diamonds or furs and such


I claimed to be so busy

with the things inside my zone,

But deep inside I longed for

something special of my own


I couldn’t let me life go by

just watching others win,

I held my breath and stepped outside

to let the change begin


I took a step and with new strength

I’d never felt before,

I kissed my comfort zone good bye

and closed and locked the door


If you are 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

Greet your future with a smile,

success is there for you!
