baby steps, written by Toni L.A. Cross 12/7/09

ever so slowly
pulled up on two feet
look at me!
my mommy says i’m sweet
 
then i start to totter
then i start to tip
then falling on my bottom
and I bit my lip
 
 
ever so slowly
stand up again
look at me!
taller than i had been
 
then i start to totter
then i start to tip
then falling on my bottom
and I bit my lip
 
ever so slowly
i put one foot ahead
feel like i’m falling
but i step instead!
 
then i start to totter
then i start to tip
then falling on my bottom
and I bit my lip
 
ever so slowly
i get up and try
and then i’m walking
and mommy starts to cry
