Forward

We step
Into our future
Trembling forward
Little by little
Without map and not without fear
Bravely inching
Along the way
Dimly lit paths
Clear as day or
Dark as night they appear
Suddenly in relief
Constructed by our choices
To live, to love, to laugh in courage
To bravely go not to cower or freeze
Beholding the possibilities for hope and for love

We step some days
Along a thin rock ledge
Carefully inching toward our goals
Our destinies in the distance

If we are wise
We seize the day
Stop, smell the flowers
Clear in the light they beckon
Flowering still in the night

We walk forward
Through wind, rain and fire
All that would dash our spirit
And yet we survive
And yet we live
And yet we thrive
