To color inside the lines.
Safe. Within your own.
Personal perimeter.
Actions. Often dictated by others!!
Always living by rules.
You have invariably known.
Content to stay where you are!!
Have faith in yourself.
Believe you can.
Strive to be you. Your own self.
Not what others.
Think you should be.
Be willing to take risks!!
Genuine insight.
Often met with resistance.
Making progress.
Meets with more contention!!
To color inside the lines.
Your sanctuary.
To move outside those lines.
Takes courage. Strength.
Mediacrity. Your comfort zone.
Never be afraid.
To make that change.
To discover what lays beyond.
Achieving your dreams.
Takes risks.
Learning to.
Color outside the lines.
Gives you hope!!
Hope. Gives you courage.
Deep inside each of us.
Courage waits.
Believe in yourself.
Grab hold of it.
Courage. Leaves fear behind.
Knowing you can succeed.
Surpassing your boundaries.
At a time. When you thought.
There was. No hope!!
A time when you had to always.
Color inside the lines!!!

“To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury;
& refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable;
to be wealthy, not rich;
to listen to stars & birds,
babes & sages,
with an open heart;
to study hard; think quietly,
act frankly, talk gently,
await occasions, hurry never;
in a word, to let the spiritual,
unbidden & unconscious,
grow up through the common
~this is my symphony.”
words by William Henry Channing

“Elegance the only Beauty that never fades.” ~ Audrey Hepburn
