The familiar

Staring at this image
takes me back on a ride
to the past
"You can take a horse to the river
but you cannot force it to drink"
a phrase i heard
gazillion times while growing up.

How many times have we stopped
ourselves from taking
a bite from the opportunities
life served us?
Scared to live our
addictive familiar serenity
into the unknown we do not
wish to tread.

Never challenging nor evolving
just us and that same old
same old
same old
familiar pattern in
which we revel.

heartbreaking but true
no nothing new ever grows
comfort zone monoculture
no room for new seed to grow.
