The First Step To Begin Again - Poem by Marie J. Christopher
Don't sell yourself short.
Ask, dig deep inside and again try;
For one day, looking back, you shall see how far you have achieved.
You are better than you think.
All problems and obstacles, which all seem
So overwhelming and unconquerable,
Are served as the adjectives to define the real precious YOU.
We are all far from being perfect;
And don't you ever forget that,
For perfection can only come either from God or from foolish pride.
Try harder, one small step at a time;
Try harder to get up and get going;
Seek harder, deep into your soul; be creative, but do take breaks.
I know, it is hard and you're probably not used to it,
But everything worthwhile always begins with one small step,
And if it easy, it would not be precious first step, then many first steps follow;
Soon looking back, you shall see how far you have traveled
Your long journey but it always takes your soul out of darkness into the light.
I once took that first steps, no, many first steps of my life journey;
They were always hard but I was never quitter, I might be down but never completely out,
And I was always, always glad that I had tried little harder each time.
And one last advice, the very important one:
Pray before you take your first step back into life and light.
