steps of life

by mortalrose

18 years ago I took the very first steps on my own

my dad let go of my hand and smiled so proudly as I tried to put one foot in front of the other

frankly said I fell to the ground right away but that didn't stop me from getting up and trying again

months later I was trying to take the next step - I was very keen on trying to talk

even though I didn't know the words and my parents didn't understand a single thing I told them, I nevertheless uttered in baby talk the greatest stories that I could imagine

then, years later, I started school

then, years later, I started school and that was one huge step further in life

my parents watched me grow older

my parents watched me grow older grow more confident

my parents watched me grow older grow more confident grow more independant

I had gone through the first love, the first heart break, the first and last prom

but even leaving their house, moving to another state, going to college and only seeing them once a month

will never make them forget how things started, how the first step that I took 18 years ago

was the first step to a long journey

and every time they look at me, being all grown-up in the middle of my life

they still see that little kid that's trying to walk on its own so bad

but that's never giving up and never admitting to fail
