The First Step

the first step

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.
