The One

I used to be strong.

I never fell down.

I tumbled 

So close 

But so far from the ground.

I held people up.

I’d say, 

“You’ll build up”.

“Keep your chin up”.

I’d climb into the sky and fly.

There were many spots that were blind, 

But I knew I was in line.

I’d jump up, turn around, make sure my feet were glued to the ground.

One step, two step, three step, 

That was my prep.

Then I was ready, 

Straight and steady.

Breathe in, breathe out.

Without a doubt.

All on my own,

I was the one who shone.

I love the calmnees of my poem. When I re-read this poem it calms me down.
