Like a toddler learning to walk
I stumble eagerly, impatiently
trusting you to catch me. hold me.
You wouldn’t let me fall – would you?
My cheeks are squished with my toothless smile
Arch-less feet plodding onwards
Don’t let me stumble
Not on the building blocks of my youth
or…on the deceptions that lace my future.
You wouldn’t let me fall – would you Dad?
Psalm 119 vs 133: Keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let not iniquity get dominion over me
