Waiting To Begin - Poem by Lyn Paul

Don't ever think
That I don't understand
That I don't know how you feel
That I won't hold out my hand
Please don't ever think
That I won't be there for you
That you are unimportant
And I have just too much to do
Don't ever think
That the pain will not heal
It is hurting so bad we know it is real
But please
You must think and also believe
That one step at a time is all you need to achieve
One step
One path
One new corner to turn
It can be done. This you will learn
You must know that there are many warm hands
Crying out to help
Just wanting to understand
So please, believe and let people in
There is Life out there for you just waiting to begin

    Procrastination is an invisible enemy of progress. As the saying goes The journey of a million miles starts with the first step. An insightful poem bristling with wisdom. (Report) Reply
