Onward and Upward

You must
crawl
before you can
walk,
and you must
walk
before you can
run.

How many times
have these words been repeated?
How many times
have these words been written?
How many times
have I heard these words myself?
How many times
have these words become action?

In our collective evolution,
we have been crawling along
for so long.

At any time,
it could dawn on us;
an idea as bright as the sun;

the idea that we can walk.

We can all walk together.

Who knows what will happen
when we believe that we can
run.

Perhaps we will find
that ever elusive
Rainbow.

Perhaps we will find
that we are
that ever elusive
Rainbow.

You must
stand
before you can
jump,
and you must
climb
before you can
conquer.

We may have fallen,
seemingly,
into a pit of despair

but we are closer
than ever
to standing up

and jumping
just high enough
to grasp the edge
and pull ourselves out.

We have faced
the pit.
There have been many cloudy days.

Next we will face
the mountain,
as the Rainbow that we truly are.

Dedicated to my new friend Paula, with infinite love in my heart, shining as bright than the sun.
Friends are a gift from God.
Together we will rise,
together as warriors
(not worriers),
onward and upward.
