A Life

The hardest step is the first step, They say. I think it’s true. No, I know it’s true. I took it today. Maybe now, I can have a life. The hardest step is the first step, They say. But unless I put my Foot down, I’ll never know if Maybe now, I can have a life. A life without careless words and careful comfort. A life without loving insults and calm threats. A life without soft, choking blankets of security. A life without fear and manipulation. The hardest step is the first step, They say. I took it today, holding A black, ink-filled pen, signing The first step of my tomorrow. Maybe now, I can have a life.
