One Step Forward

Challenge every accident knowingly touched
By a slimy smile
And encourage a subtle confidence
Almost broken

A slimy smile
With even the “kindest” of intentions
Almost breaks
A pounding heart into pieces

Even the kindest of intentions
Will unconsciously awaken
Pieces of a pounding heart
With lingering terrors

Unconsciously awaken
A confidence subtly encouraged
Beyond lingering terrors
To knowingly challenge every “accident”
