Today I'm going to take one step:
One step forward, solid, standing;
No two steps back, no thoughts forgotten,
Just one clean step, a perfect landing.

Today I'm going to face one day:
One day only, no future or past;
No regrets of failures, no grudges holding,
Just one new day, like it's the last.

Today I'm going to make one plan:
One plan for something never tried;
Not four or five impossible projects,
But one simple plan that I decide.

Today I'm going to pick one dream
One dream to believe with all my heart
One step, one day, one plan for dreaming
That today is when my life will start.

  1. I can relate quite well. I want to do everything all at once, but this medium called life never seems to keen on allowing me to. Hopefully I will soon master the medium of life...just call me Van God! lol I'm completely kidding.

  2. A very effective poem with a message that many can relate to. Starting each stanza with "Today I'm going.." is bold and clever.

  3. Love the determination in this poem, Caren. :)
