I Take Every Step

© Copyright Jan Richards All rights reserved

I take every step gingerly
Like the careful step of an old woman
With dry and brittle bones
I take every step though difficult
I must forge ahead

I take every step
Bent and beaten by the issues of life
Head raised high, refused to be defeated
Like a man in command

I take every step
Trying not to look back
I must keep on moving
Irrespective of what life
Throws my way

Message in the Bottle

I sat by the window pane
Watching the world go by
Thinking about unfulfilled dreams
So many questions to ask
Yet no answers
My heart heavy with the burden
My eyes heavy with unshed tears
I feel all alone
Bearing this burden
Then I heard the whispers of the song
That confirms am not alone in this journey
Those hundreds of letters
That came back

With the message in the bottle
