I’ve said it before…. To get something you’ve never had, you must do something you’ve never done. Anything else is insanity!
Firmly fastened, tethered and chained
To the past, our old routine
Clinging to what is comfortable
And all too familiar
How will we know the possibilities
That await us outside our
Beyond our front door
If we won’t step out
Afraid to fail, thus
Afraid to try
Imprisoned by tradition
Nothing new to risk or venture
Holding tightly to the old ways
Silly enough to think
Something new will result
