comfort zone

live your life such that
each comfort zone you slip into
should be a place of
recuperation, reflection
before you move
to the next

your comfort zone should not be too…
after a while it should in fact
agitate you

to climb higher
to change direction
to recharge your inspiration
a revolutionary thinking
an isolation
you do want to be unique

live your life such that
each comfort zone
should be a grateful memory
as you look forward
to your next

  1. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for this amazing poem. Comfort zones can indeed be places of recuperative healing and, like you highlight, can also trap and dwarf us. All growth happens outside of comfort zones.

    The manner in which you describe comfort zones immediately brought to mind (particularly your last 5 lines) maqaam (stations) and hal (states), and a journey without end.

    Thank you again.

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
