Baby Steps (poem)


I’m taking baby steps again

and like a little child I’m impatient

Pushing myself as far as I can

It’s not easy taking baby steps again

When I know I’ve done it before

But sometimes I need a helping hand

As I take those baby steps again

Learning to hold back to get ahead and then

I won’t need to take those baby steps again.
