Baby steps still
that’s all I’ve done so far
making these life changes ever so slowly
taking too long though, like a dying star
but it’s really why I do it
all these changes life throws at me
like the unhappiness I feel these days
doing something that used to make me so happy
like teaching others
about touch and similar things just like it
but I hate seeing the indifference
they’re only there for the hours on their transcript
that even if some of them
truly do enjoy the stuff I do
it’s too late, and it’s time to move on
do something else, like the things I really want to
and everything that comes with it
the pain, the heartache and most of all the joy –
so I might as well get on with it.

I feel your words as much as I envision them. You were one of the first people I followed on WordPress, which was a challenge at the time because I wasn’t sure what that meant. Your stories and poetry have inspired me, enthralled me, and taught me. I connect very much to this one. The virtual typewriter calls one to it like the sirens and cave nymphs called to ancient mariners. Those stories that live in one’s head are entangled in one’s life and sometimes they just can’t be ignored. I hope you write and wish you well.
I’m sorry it took me a long time to find this comment, but thank you so much! I hope you are writing as well and thank you so much for such kind words!
You are one of the strongest women I know. Do not take baby steps. Step out smartly, head held high, like the beautiful woman I love and admire. smoochies. ❤
Arkie! So sorry it took me forever to get to this comment, and thank you! I try to be strong, like you and keep on trying 🙂 Miss you!
I agree. Writing is a lifetime goal and we never stop learning.
“Baby steps still that’s all I’ve done so far.” Thank you for sharing your outstanding poetry.
Thank you so much, John. Sometimes in writing in general, it seems that’s all I take – baby steps – though baby steps are better than no steps at all 🙂
