Poem: The Next Step You Take

The Next Step You Take

Your strength is not your own.
It never was, despite your imaginings,

coming instead
from those you have leaned on,
or worshiped;

by the choices that defined you
for good and ill, choices
that need not define you
any longer.

So step.
Choose again.

Choose wisely,
and live not as a journey,
but a dance.
