Babies First Steps


I must take a lesson
from babies first steps
For without fear they try walking
Not know they are inept

No holding back
They keep trying again
But without that first step
The lesson is lost in the end

So too must I take that first step
No looking back, just move ahead
But only with trepidation I go with a thread
Attached to memories Left in my head

    Once we take that first step and know what we are doing, where we are going and where we came from, there is definitley no looking back. Is is possible that you are thinking of taking a first step JoJo. If so, I wish you well, go with God. Excellent poem JoJo.--Melvina-- (Report) Reply
