Moving forward… – #WriteBravely


I’ve reached the top step. Many voices have told me not to look back, but I do.

I remember the first step, and I remember I had thought the climb might be futile.

But it hasn’t been.

I remember a missed step midway. I fell a few steps down, and thought I wouldn’t be able to climb again.

But I have.

I met a friend. We climbed together. Till a different set of stairs went another direction, and she chose those. I was alone again, and thought this might not be my path.

But I kept climbing.

Now looking ahead, I see an empty path below beautiful white marble arches. I don’t see its end. For a moment, I ask myself if I am where I was meant to be.

But only for a moment.

Because I know the answer, and I start moving forward.

This post is inspired by the Write Tribe Festival of Words (March 2019). The prompt for 8th March is the picture at the beginning of this post.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
