The Poetry Snapshot: standing is falling

A step in any direction could lead you down such different paths,
that sometimes it seems easier to stand still in comfort.
Never move forward so you can guarantee not taking the wrong step.

But what is wrong with the wrong step?

Is it that you have to
work harder to climb up?
You reach a dead end
and have to back track?

If the right step brings you
to the top of a mountain,
every wrong step creates a
beautiful story of lessons learned
and memories earned.

Standing still only deprives you
of a beautiful view or a beautiful story.

So move, dance, run, leap,
but do not stand still.
