Sometimes to move forward
You feel like you’re stepping back
Sometimes this gives you the space
To feel like you’re on the right track
Sometimes stepping seems impossible
You feel like you’re wading or trapped
Sometimes try standing fast in this moment
You may see something new in this gap
Sometimes to stand is the biggest step
You feel that moving backwards is just too tough
Sometimes your strongest move is to pause
And know that your presence in time is enough
I’ve been an avid reader and scribbler for years but only recently started thinking about publishing my work.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and have, since 2008, been producing scripts for theatre as my main focus of writing, but always scribbling poems, songs and short stories for fun, and/or catharsis. I’m also a keen sketcher and sketchnoter.
