Bird by Bird

Bird by bird
Day by day
One foot in front of the other
You do this
Because you have a fire
A desire to find self-actualization
Through perseverance
Comes strength
Conviction in your self-worth

The first miles are always the hardest
Then there is a shift
Then another
And another
This force
Is a momentum that cannot be stopped
If you focus your energy forward

If you listen
You’ll hear birds singing
The movement of water
And life
Night turns to day
Winter turns to spring
These changes are inevitable
As is the forward momentum of time
Ride that momentum
One day you will realize that you are free
You are exactly who
You are supposed to be
