I made baby steps
Those steps that made men merry and got a record
These steps that keep me alive despite my weakness.
The day I made those steps
That day an unsolved mystery unveiled to go uphill.
It’s been ages since I been walking
Taking daily steps uphill.
A bruise here a failure there
A pain now a tear then
A smile a hope
A plan a trap
I fight without an escape
With each step sure and sharp
Unsure if it’s straight or make a turn
I might make it uphill alive
I’m not sure yet, but hopeful
I’m taking daily steps to womanhood.
