The Walk #WednesdayVerses
I often take a step forward,
And then two back.
This isn’t because I’m a coward,
Often, that thing called luck, I lack.
Not knowing where life is heading,
I decide for once where I want to go.
Through nature, I go walking,
For there are answers I need to know.
As into nature’s arms, I walk,
I feel I belong here, in nature’s embrace.
I give myself a pep talk,
And decide to walk at my own pace.
As the gentle breeze blows,
I feel my troubled mind being at ease.
I feel each worry as it goes,
My fears now begin to cease.
I let go of things that bother me,
As I watch the leaves fall.
For sometimes it is okay to let things be,
To let go or to stand tall.
I could wallow in self-pity,
And cry about things not being right.
But then I could also be gritty,
And give my troubles a fight.
As I walk now, taking a step forward,
I look back and realize how far I’ve come.
I know that I haven’t been a coward,
Only a better person, I’ve become.
A little bit about the picture : This picture was taken on a random walk through the English Garden in Munich. I had no destination in mind and I just kept walking through this beautiful place in all its autumn glory.
