Day 94 – Steps

Steps and more steps, meticulously
moving steadily onward,
closer to free.

If anyone can earn a liberated life,
rid at least of limits
though certainly not strife,

it’s the dedicated man who’s planned it all out,
who’s tempered his impatience
while mapping his route,

the one who knows it’s less of a race than a plot,
that his reward will reflect
how zealously he fought

not to somehow deserve his perceived fair share
but simply to get from here
to there.

    • And thank YOU for sharing a unique perspective on this poem which I hadn’t even thought of! Makes me so happy whenever I hear of people applying these poems to their own lives in ways I hadn’t intended but totally support 🙂
