Accumulating on the path of life are steps,
moments – considered, counted, and gathered.
Snatches of time, swatches of memories
interwoven – creating the tapestry of existence.
Seemingly solitary journeys define
the fiber of the soul, solidify the placement of feet.
When you feel alone, remember you’re not.
You carry inside all you have ever been,
the hope of all you can be, and the strength
to take the steps between.
