Comfort Zone

Danger – the aspect of life that I have been programmed to fear
I shiver at the thought of a raging car coming near.

I prefer to live my life on the sidelines, viewing those who dance with fire
For to risk being burned alive, I hold no desire.

Life throws out endless twists and turns
It is easier to hide behind insecurities than to risk getting hurt.

I do not want to find myself pinned under a powerful horse
I would rather watch TV lazily and let life run its course.

However, I should take risks, even if they are small.
It is better to live audaciously than to have never lived at all.
