A Message to Myself
I wish I were more daring.........
Could climb outside my comfort zone
Where things look so inviting
Yet here I stay in limbo
Not knowing how to break this spell
That holds me captive still
With all things so familiar
This world holds wonders yet unseen
But will I ever see them
Or know their secret beauty?
If I don't make the effort now
I may remain forever
Within my little world
Hello, there - are you listening?
Wake up and smell the coffee!
Take a step outside........................
