It’s easy in this life to soon become
a creature of our habits (safety first).
But repetition only makes us dumb —
stuck in a bubble which, in time, will burst.
Within that bubble, always looking out,
we see the world just through a concave lens
which then distorts (of that there is no doubt)
the way imprisoned matter comprehends.
But why not raze imaginary walls?
(the product of our wounded, damaged hearts)
This graffiti on them an angel scrawls:
“Don’t limit living just because it smarts!”
It’s time to leave that “safe” old comfort zone:
We learn our greatest lessons once we’ve flown.
