Walking in Concrete

One step forward

Two steps back

 

Is this ever true

 

One move closer 

Two backtracks

 

Creates new paths for you

 

One truth found

Two lies learned

 

Shows only wisdom to gain

 

One answer earned

Two questions asked

 

Proves desire to ascertain

 

What may feel like wind pulling you back

Digs your feet further into the ground

Ever tear that you feel fall

I promise only marks the sound

 

The sound of you overcoming obstacles

Dear, slowing down is not a defeat

Because you keep trudging, keep on nudging

Leaving messy footprints in the concrete
