Your Comfort Zone is A Liar

Your Comfort Zone is A Liar

A Poem by Rae Merkle

I’ve persistently thought

that coming back from 

always felt quicker 

than going to.

And so I see 

how hard it is to take

one step forward,

but terribly, intimately,

I know the surrender

of taking ten steps back.
