I don't know if I can now. I'm too bruised...

Her First Walk

I can't do it.

Yes you can.

The world is dizzying, ruthless. I keep seeing memories so I'll just look at the ground.

Look up. You have to look up to--

No. I don't want to.

Why?

It's hard.

Just take my hand.

Is your hand strong enough?

Just look in my eyes.

Are your eyes big enough for my heart to pour through?

You don't know unless you try. Try, and trust.

Okay. I touch your hand. I feel so little compared to you.

It's okay. Now take one step.

One step one step one step ohhh I see the memories again, the words the shame I can't!

I'm nudging you forward. Just breathe.

Breathe.

Trust.

Trust.

There! You took your first step!

I did??

Yes, just keep looking at me, keep looking at me--

Will you leave me?

What? No, never!

Are you sure? Please don't leave, please don't leave, I'm tired of them all, leaving...

Shh, I will never leave you. I'm still here.

Okay. Okay. Okay okay okay...

Another step!

Yay! The world doesn't seem as scary anymore when I'm looking at you, holding your hand.

Good good, I love you so much. Keep going.

I'm walking, I'm walking!

Isaiah 40:31 ~ but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
