Who We Were

 

Divine
Innocent
Helpless
Wanting

We smile in our sleep

Hungry

We learn to feed ourselves

Restless
Cranky
Anxious

Some of us know how to soothe ourselves

We learn to crawl
We explore our limitations
We discover new abilities

We’re stretched

Growing pains are inevitable
We jabber and drool over it
Because we can’t find the words
Or at least we’re unsure
About stringing them all together

Eventually
Life nudges us along
We strain for the unknown
And fearlessly
We grow stronger

Tiptoes feel for balance
Gripping the floor
Dancing with gravity

We learn to walk
Until we run
And then we taste
The thrill
Sweet freedom
