Step Forward by Karletta

I got lost twice today

And my phone died.

Yet something emerged

And I’m thankful.

Oscillating doubt and fear

I put my foot down

More times than I could count.

I said ‘Be responsible. Step forward’.

‘You have a purpose. Step forward’.

It took hours of this.

I got it done, and I don’t know how.

Rewarded myself with crap food.

Never again, I told myself. Don’t eat that shit.

And it showed up, in stark contrast.

“You’re worth more than this.”

“I’m worth something.”

For that thought, I’m grateful.

I can step forward.

I can count on myself. For now.

For this I’m thankful.
