Poetry Month: Begin with a Step 15 of 30

For the month of April, I'll be writing poetry each day in celebration of National Poetry Month.  I've decided not choose a theme, not to plan the writing, but instead to wait to see what poetry finds me each day.   

Today we're halfway there!!! 



the world will tell you 
 that you don't
have
what it takes to
do what needs to be done, that you don't see 
all that can get in the way of your dreams, the
challenge is to fight to keep the dream whole
 to not be afraid of the staircase
that seems so far from where you stand, the world is not just,
 but if you do whatever it might take 
you will find a way to make the 
 impossible, possible, but first 
 you begin with just one step
