Is it There?

Katie Avatar

The ache, the dragging, the uncertainty,

The exhaustion, the pain, the embarrassment,

I just want to keep moving,

I just want to feel good.

My mind doesn’t fail me, 

My soul is still intact,

But my body? It decides what course I can take.

How much I can do,

Where I go,

What I see.

But it’s given me the great joy,

And my biggest victories.

Take a step, is it there?

I look down to make sure.

I grab a hold of the rail,

And keep going.
