Staying on safe shore
In love with beauty of life
Battle ship arrives
Other shore awaits
Calm waters welcome
Waves will rise again?
When we get accustomed to a way of life, familiarity is very comforting. We run away from change and get used to being contented with what we have. Being contented is nice, but not when we can achieve much much more. Change is always hard to deal with. When we climb our battle ship transporting us to our new destination, we flinch! Even the calmness seems to be scary, even though the previous place had been a rage. What matters to us then is the fact that it's unfamiliar. And that fear of the unknown hampers our steps. But we forget we are humans. We are programmed to adjust to the new surroundings very fast. Time will pass by, the calm waters will find waves again, until one fine day when yet another battle will needs us to fight yet another battle of life. So why not be prepared without hanging our hearts on our sleeves?
