Changing Steps

written by: Greg Massey



Don't fight the old

but focus on the new

Step forward

or remain in the same place

If there is no challenge

there is no change

So, today,

I let my right foot

Fall last

as I descended the stairwell.

My left knee locking,

burning, grinding

Bone on bone

Nose on floor

Inevitable change

Unnecessary steps.
