Do not hold me back…

Why do I allow myself to be held back by fear

I stay in my comfort zone, holding on for life dear

I say I am cautious, I reason I am measured in my approach

When on my placid life, excitement tries to encroach

I don’t want to fall, I don’t want to fail

I am terrified of the thought that life might derail

The plans (A, B, and C) carefully crafted by me

Therefore my life stays within the realms of safety…


I close my eyes but am afraid to visualize

Indulging in an adventure, thus I fail to realize

The dreams that would need me to step outside

My cocoon of comfort where I mostly hide

My life is good enough, but a nagging voice says

Maybe my potential remains untapped in many ways

In being among supportive people, I am fortunate

I have to conquer my fears to change my fate..


I don’t make resolutions for a new year

But this year I resolve to face my fears

One small step at a time beyond my comfort zone

This is a journey I have to undertake alone
