In the Box

We feel comfortable
In the groove
The old familiar groove
Where the markings n indentations are all
Well traversed routes from times immemorial
Occasionally we have to cross the line
Venture out of this old familiar groove
Take a risk that is heady yet scary
To feel refreshed and quite invigorated
Out of this old familiar groove
The good old box is our imaginary cocoon
Self imposed, erected in self-preservation
But life will bypass Us, if we do not jump out
Of this old familiar yet very comfortable groove!

So, let’s be brave and make a move Out
Of this ever so safe n familiar groove!!!

Habit is necessary; it is the habit of having habits, of turning a trail into a rut, that must be incessantly fought against if one is to remain alive.
Edith Wharton
US novelist (1862 – 1937)
