Everyday I'm told to live in a way that gives you glory
Everyday I'm called to walk and tell the world your story
But I just don't know if i can really do this
So I just won't go, afraid that I'll miss
They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step of faith
It'll take a miracle because the first step is the hardest to take
And I just can't see where it is you're taking me
So I'll stay right here out of comfort and fear
They say you can walk on water if you just believe
Or move mountains with faith the size of a mustard seed
But I just don't think I'm strong enough
For the wind is strong and the waves are rough
I try to follow you and walk in your truth and light
Yet I try to avoid doing wrong and strive to do what is right
But I fall so readily and start to sink in shifting sands
So I cry out. Place my feet upon the rock, help me to dry land

See,
the destination
matters
but not as much
as the
walk.

Every step
is satisfaction,
pain,
pleasure,
memories
and dreams.

Every light
in the lonely sky
is waiting
for you
to look up,
to stand
on your feet
and reach

Life ladder is too high,
   snakes rule every step,
      luck dice not on my side
            and I am falling down.

My other father... for Merve

Locked away in my mind
No chance of release
Trapped in my room
Only place I found peace

Too broken to speak
But unable to weep
Tears locked frozen
Doors won't open
Hurt buried under
heart raging thunder

Then you were around
Spoiling my view
I wanted my daddy
I didn't ask for you
Sitting by my mum
Holding her hand
Churned up my stomach
Too young to understand

Then one day I felt a
Small love from within
You never gave up
You never gave in
Surly this meant that-
Could it really be
That I wasn't unlovable
Because you loved me

You were there for the
darkest long years of my life
Me staring at my reflection
Gripping the knife

I'm so grateful to you
that you stayed by my
side
I think had you not been
I would surly have died
My step dad arrived when I was 14... my dad walked out when I was 11... my step dad saved my life. No words can express my gratitude.

We are heading toward the unknown morning,
ready to face with the heavy light of the world
only this livid silence embraces us now,
yet still, I do not fear to take one step forward
for I know there's no future forsaken
for I know I am going to happen by you.
Anna Margarita Sep 2017
Moving on for you was like
extinguishing forest fires
that represented how
wild and alive
our love was

And baby, it's no use
killing them rapidly too

Every step
is satisfaction,
pain,
pleasure,

Every light
in the lonely sky
is waiting
for you
to look up,
stand
on your feet,
and reach.
Every step of mine
Is in your pursuit.
Wherever you may be
You are in my vision

When the bond is of pain,
Then how bad is separation.
As only they get separated,
That were always wanted.

You are hidden within,
In my heart my friend.
If not inside my smiles,
Then surely in my grimaces.

Every step of mine
Is in your pursuit.
Wherever happiness is
There lies my success.
