UBC Day 14 - Take One Positive Step Forward.



I've been in a bit of a rut this week. Writing this poem was therapeutic as it reminded me that I need to take action, even one small step. Taking action is the key.


When the future seems too scary and bleak
When you just can’t seem to move,
When you don’t know where to find what you seek
When you feel they all disapprove,

Take one positive step forward, one tiny step
That’s all that’s required by you,
Taking action of any kind
Will help to see it through,

Taking action starts the journey,
Even if it might feel strange,
Before you know it, you’re up and moving
And on the road to change.
