Steps

Taking in the task ahead

Countless steps of which I dread

Trudging forth I contemplate 

Effort applied—I escalate

Oppressive loads weigh me down

Impelled, I pause and turn around

Astonishment at what I see

Steps I’ve conquered— to what degree

Overwhelmed I take it in

Where I’m going and where I’ve been

Had I not started this ascent

I’d still be down there—malcontent 

I’ve learned in order to transcend

One step first— and I recommend

Continue, soon you’ll feel light

Your inspiration—the future’s bright
