All Of The Steps Of The Way - Poem by Rebecca Walters

Both my knees tremble
Both my hands sweat
Both my eyes shut
For they are too scared
To see what is ahead

Both my lungs burn
For it is unhealthy to breath
This air polluted with fear

Standing here I feel
As if I measured just one inch
How is a girl this small
Supposed to climb such a big tree?

Lost in a maze
With apparently no exit
I can't help but turn around
Just to see if you are still behind me

When darkness overpowers the glorious sun
When it makes no difference
To keep your eyes open or shut
You know I'll search for your hand
Just because when I hold yours
I'll know I still have mine

Please don't walk for me
Just be there when I fall
Kiss my wounds and take my hand
Help me hold my head up high

If I one day decide to fly
Please don't hold me back
Brush my wings and bless the sky
For I will not need a map to fly back

As I grow into the woman
I hope I become
As my limbs get longer
As I learn a new thing each day
As my dolls grow dusty
I can't help but wonder
If you'll be there to guide me
All of the steps of the way

I know I am young and reckless
For I have done things
That have hurt you
Trust me, not intentionally
I hope you can forgive and forget
For we still have a lot to walk
Because after all
Life is one hell of a road
A road I'm not yet prepared
To walk alone
