The anthem of healing is as follows
two steps forward today
one step backwards tomorrow.
Progress is slow but it’s progress, nonetheless.
You keep working at it until you climb out of the mess.
The mess created by those who thought it okay
to hurt you in terrible and undeserved ways.
Life is a group of circles
that will certainly bring you back
to the same place again and again
if learning from it is something you lack.
So keep working at it,
progress is being made.
Two steps forward and one back everyday
will add up eventually
and before you know it, you’re there!
Just remember your original goal and don’t get caught in the snare
of fixating on the horizon, never seeing how far you’ve come.
Because one step is one step no matter where you’re from.
Progress is worth celebrating no matter how slow.
As long as your moving and continuing to grow.
You’ll reach your destination quicker than you know.
