They say the first step is always the hardest –
Sometimes they are wrong.
Sometimes the first step is taken with drive and decisiveness
Because the first step is new
But as you step more
And what you are walking toward is a bit
Of a blur
And you can’t seem to stop looking back
At what you are walking away from…
The first step seems easy by comparison
To the fact
That you have to keep walking
Even when you’re really, really tired.
And you haven’t made it far enough yet
To realize that the past isn’t better than the future.
