put one foot in front of the other

there is no happiness in the waiting

i buy bigger shoes for my boys,
grateful that they have a chance to grow,
enraged that she never did

and time keeps trudging on.

i summon the courage
to put one foot in front of the other,
to walk out the door every morning

and go see what other horrors
the world might have for me today.
