Small Steps

We forget our small-step ways.
Putting  one foot down.
Using the sofa to scoot around.
Letting go to see if we could stand.
If we fell down, we pulled
ourselves up and tried again.

We grow to want thing's right away.
No time to stand on wobbly legs.
We push the sofas out of the way.
If we fall down, we get embarrassed.
Look for the bump in the floor to blame.

We need to remember that once we
took small steps, we were off and running.

This was written in response to the Wordsmith Studio Prompt-Young. Yes, that's me off to the races and I haven't stopped yet.  Thanks to Rebecca Barray for this prompt.
