Take That First Step Into The World

Could you make the sacrifice

Can you let yourself die

All that you are

All that you were

Turn to dust

Return to dust

Like the milky way

Churned and sculpted

From star matter

Until eyes visible

Seeing but never seen

Until ears hearing

Hearing but never heard

I take my first step and lunge forward

Uneasy of my footing

But I see you like a parent

Egging me on
